Abstract :
Studies the iconography and cultural context of early 16th c. altarpieces by Lorenzo Lotto and others in two churches (S. Bernardino in Pignolo and S. Spirito) in Bergamo. In the first part of the article, the author focuses on Lotto's Madonna and Child Enthroned with Saints and Angels (Altarpiece of S. Bernardino) in the church of S. Bernardino in Pignolo, suggesting that the patron was Paolo Cassotti, a member of the confraternity (Confraternita di Disciplini Bianchi) that governed the church. Identifies anomalies in the representation of S. Anthony Abbot in Lotto's work, comparing and contrasting his representation with other images of the saint in early 16th c. European art. In the second part, the author examines the early 16th c. renovations to the church of S. Spirito commissioned by the Canons Regular of the Lateran, analyzes the beliefs and religious politics of this order, and studies the iconography of the altarpieces [i.e., Ambrogio da Fossano's Altarpiece of the Pentecost (1509); Andrea Previtali's 2Altarpiece of S. John the Baptist (1515), and Lotto's Madonna and Child Enthroned with Saints and Angels (1521)] in the church, in relation to the Canons' anti-monastic position. ;
