February 6, 2024

Episode Info:
This episode examines the history and patronage of one of the great medieval churches of Florence: Santa Maria Novella. The seat of the Dominican Order in Florence, the rather severe style of the art in this church reflects the orthodox philosophy of this particular religious order. Perhaps the most spectacular of the decorative spaces in this church is its chapter house, known as the Spanish Chapel.
