Abstract

This article examines the architecture and imagery of Orcagna's tabernacle in Orsanmichele. The authors suggest that some of the unusual features of the tabernacle can be better understood by considering the history of the miracle-working image enframed by the tabernacle, the practices of the confraternity of Orsanmichele, and the particular circumstances of Florentine history in the decade of the 1350's. The tabernacle, then, shows continuity with the past rather than marking a radical break with the period before the Black Death.
