Abstract :
Observes (from documents) that the cycle of seven canvases painted by Lotto for the choir of the Santuario della Santa Casa, Loreto, as completed by 1556, and that there is thus no reason to doubt that Lotto himself oversaw the installation in the choir according to the sequence he planned. Notes that since the paintings (with subjects from the Old and New Testaments) were shifted to another location before 1585, the original sequence is difficult to reconstruct. Suggests a sequence based on criteria of symmetry and format as well as on source descriptions, and proposes that the theme of the cycle was justice and the forgiveness of sin. ;
