ABSTRACT: Throughout history, scholarship on Gianlorenzo Bernini's Ecstasy of Saint Teresa in the Cornaro Chapel has wrangled with issues of sexuality and the religious image, and has never fully elucidated the mystical narrative of the altarpiece. Through a cultural contextualization and review of the literature on both the Baroque and Bernini, it is possible to begin a proper reading of the subject of eroticism in his work. By establishing the foundations of mysticism and moving forward from a medieval precedent, rather than backward from the contemporary period, any notions of profanity within Bernini's work become appropriately aligned with the sacred.

Reviews of the Series: “The McFarland Companion series…has been consistently excellent, both in its choice of subjects and its quality of scholarship and writing”—Mystery Scene. Considered one of the “Queens of Crime”—along with such greats as Agatha Christie, Dorothy Sayers and Margery Allingham—Ngaio Marsh (1895–1982) was a gifted writer and a celebrated author of classic British detective fiction, as well as a successful theater director. Best known for the 32 detective novels she published between 1934 and 1982, she received the Order of the British Empire in 1948 and was made a Dame of the British Empire (DBE) in 1966. Based on years of original research by the curator of the Ngaio Marsh House in Christchurch, New Zealand, this book explores the fascinating literary world of Dame Ngaio.
