The Triumph of the Cross

This chapter examines the place of the cross in the theology and preaching of the century leading into the Protestant Reformation. The writings of Vincent Ferrer and Girolomo Savonarola provide examples of the stress placed in preaching on an emotional identification with the sufferings of Christ and of Mary. The theology of Gabriel Biel exemplifies the nominalist approach to soteriology. The art of Frà Angelico, the young Michelangelo, and other early Renaissance painters shows the effect of humanism on the portrayal of the Passion.

Keywords:   Renaissance, nominalism, humanism, Passion of Christ, Michelangelo, Frà, Angelico, Biel, Savonarola
