Reconstructing the Lost Frescoes of Santa Maria Sopra Minerva in Rome from the Meditationes of Cardinal Juan De Torquemada: A Case Study in the History of Art Details

This study reconstructs both the physical appearance and the spiritual experience of Torquemada's "Meditationes". An examination of the lost fresco cycle of the Minerva provides a unique opportunity to examine the conception and reception of a monumental devotional cycle commissioned by one of the most erudite theologians of the fifteenth-century. "The Meditationes" of Cardinal Juan de Torquemada have long tantalized scholars of Quattrocento Rome. Destroyed in the sixteenth century, this monumental fresco cycle, based on a devotional text written by Torquemada, has been variously attributed to Fra Angelico, Antoniazzo Romano, and Melozzo de Forli. Due to the loss of the paintings and the paucity of archival evidence, scholars have tended to refer only briefly to this major commission. This study will appeal to scholars of Italian Renaissance art, religious art, and religious history.
