Beautiful Blackness: Representing Black Sanctity in the Early Modern Catholic Atlantic

Erin Rowe’s current research traces the rise and circulation of devotion to black saints throughout the early modern Catholic world. Some of the key sources for the centrality of cults of black saints in early modern devotion are the surviving images—almost all polychrome sculpture dating from the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. In this lecture Rowe focuses on sculpture of Saints Benedict of Palermo, Efigenia, and Elesbaan found in Iberian churches, some of which persist as objects of contemporary devotion.
