Collection of essays on the iconography and history of devotion to the Holy Family of Nazareth. Literary scholars, art historians, theologians, and cultural historians study a wide variety of topics in depth: the portrayal of the Holy Family in medieval English mystery plays; the contributions of Ignatius Loyola, Teresa of Ávila, Francis de Sales, and the French School of Spirituality to the evolution of the Holy Family devotion; the rapid spread of this devotion in 17th-century Canada; devotion to Jesus' extended family, specifically the cult of St. Anne, in Colonial Peru; the link between Pope Leo XIII's promotion of veneration and imitation of the Holy Family and his social teaching in his most well-known encyclical Rerum Novarum (1891); the sacramental nature of family life.
