Abstract :
Using a close reading of documents, the author dates, posits the original configuration, and confirms the attribution of the series of panels illustrating the Credo (1411-1412; Siena, Museo dell'Opera del Duomo) to Benedetto di Bindo (with gilding by Giusa di Fruosino). Asserts that the panels decorated a large cupboard that stood in the sacristy and included not only the Credo panels but also depictions of 36 standing prophets, apostles, and angels, some of which are today also in the Museo dell'Opera del Duomo. Dismisses the theory that panels now in the Thyssen-Bornemisza Collection could have been part of the set. Explains the Sienese preoccupation with Credo iconography through a combination of contemporary papal politics and the heresies of Hus and Wyclif, then sees a reflection of the sacristy series in such later Sienese work as the fresco Triumph of S. Augustine (1410-1413) in the Duomo sacristy and Sassetta's Arte della Lana altarpiece (1423-1426). ;
