Overview

In spring 1996, Saint Joseph's University hosted the exhibition "The Holy Family as Prototype of the Civilization of Love: Images from the Viceregal Americas," which commemorated the 75th anniversary of the introduction of the Feast of the Holy Family to the liturgical calendar of the Universal Church. The exhibition displayed paintings from the Spanish Colonial period, rare books and engravings from seventeenth- and eighteenth-century Europe, and lithographs and devotional paintings on tin from nineteenth-century Mexico and New Mexico. Culled from private collections, galleries in Miami, New York, Washington D.C., and institutional collections of several Catholic universities, these art works offered a visual chronicle of the evolution of devotion to the Holy Family.

Editorial Reviews

Carmelus
"excellent essays ... artifacts are illustrated in brilliant colors on good gloss paper ....a feast for lovers of art .... devotion to the Holy Family is shown to be vitally alive and an effective aid to the beleaguered family of today."
Philadelphia Inquirer
"[This] new, inch-thick catalogue is crammed with information and novel insights. . . . [It] chronicles the development of popular religious devotion to the closely knit family of Jesus, Mary, and Joseph of Nazareth."
Sixteenth Century
"Altogether, the catalog, which includes a rich corpus of related images. . ., is a significant assembly and review of information on the cult and iconography of Saint Joseph and a source of original observations on the works presented; further, it addresses broad timely topics: the family, apocalyptic thought, and the encounter of European and non-European cultures."
Tradicion Revista
"Anyone who is more than a casual scholar of Spanish Colonial art will find this a 'must buy' for inclusion in their library." -The Journal of Contemporary & Traditional Spanish Colonial Art & Culture
