"Sacrum Senatum". Las Estancias Capitulares de la Catedral de Sevilla

Alvaro Recio Mir

Álvaro Recio Mir undertakes a thorough study of the Cathedral of Seville chapter by using an interdisciplinary approach that includes historical, institutional, artistic and iconographic aspects. Different chambers make up the chapter rooms, which are a great example of Spanish art in the 16th century due to the sculptures, fresco painting and luxury items they contain. This book especially unveils the relation between art and message through iconological discourse analysis carried out by Recio.
