Abstract :
Studies the confraternity founded at the Church of Santa Caterina della Rosa (known today as Santa Caterina dei Funari), to highlight its significance for early modern poor relief. Between 1560 and 1564, Cardinal Cesi had the medieval church demolished, and a spectacular new church was designed and constructed by Guidetto Guidetti. Over the course of a century, a conservatory for girls and nuns was also built. Delineates the significance of the Jesuits as founders of confraternities and supporters of the order's mission through innovative programmes of education and social welfare. ;
