This study examines the narrative paintings of the Passion of Christ created in Italy during the thirteenth century. Demonstrating the radical changes that occurred in the depiction of the Passion cycle during the Duecento, a period that has traditionally been dismissed as artistically stagnant, Anne Derbes analyzes the relationship between these new images and similar renderings found in Byzantine sources. She argues that the Franciscan order, which was active in the Levant by the 1230s, was largely responsible for introducing these images into Italy.

'This book is an exemplum of the best 'new' art history in its analysis of texts, social setting and art production.' The Art Newspaper ' ... a very stimulating book'. History 'This is a quite admirable example of art history at its best.' The Heythrop Journal
