Rose and flower tropes are pursued into “deflowering,” paradise-garden and edenic imagery, the odor of sanctity, and the miracle after which St. Rose of Lima’s name was changed. The discussion references Venus, the Virgin Mary as the “Rose without Thorns,” the Romance of the Rose, and Christ as the New Adam, among other topics.

Keywords:   deflowering, odor of sanctity, Venus, miracle, paradise, Eden, Virgin Mary, Romance of the Rose, New Adam, flower imagery
