Creating the Cult of St. Joseph: Art and Gender in the Spanish Empire



A reader shares the following book recommendation:

Creating the Cult of St. Joseph: Art and Gender in the Spanish Empire by Charlene Villasenor Black
It is a very interesting and informative book with numerous photos depicting Saint Joseph in various ways. It is an excellent compilation of Saint Joseph imagery and the history of reviving the cult to Saint Joseph. I learned many things from this book. I did not know that a remnant of his cloak survives and it saffron in color!

Find books and more on St. Joseph at the Virtual Altar.
