Renaissance art in thirteenth-century Italy was significantly changed by two rival orders, the Dominicans, who followed the rule of Saint Augustine, and the Franciscans, who followed their own new rule.

This book explores The Abbey Bible and other prominent works of art, which were made for these two religious orders, from painted altarpieces and crucifixes, to illuminated choir books and liturgical objects.

By examining these two rival religious orders together, this major study explores the propaganda uses of this art, to promote their religious vocation, along with the naturalistic treatment and expressive gestures used within the work, which offered new developments in Italian art.
