Everyday Miracles: Medical Images in Ex-Votos

Ex-votos, devotional paintings giving thanks to a saint or deity, are a reflection of a tradition where faith and healing play a vital role in daily life.Everyday Miracles: Medical Imagery in Ex-Votos explores this tradition that began in Italy during the 1400s, spread to the New World a century later, and is still active today. The faithful commission local artists to paint ex-votos when they perceive their prayers for a miracle are answered. Although fewer ex-votos are painted today than in the past, individuals still hire artists to create these expressions of faith and healing.
