Abstract (englisch)

Abstract This article addresses the iconography of Federico Barocci's Immaculate Conception by investigating local customs. Seeing Urbino and greater Umbria as a region of semiofficial Franciscan belief makes it is possible to understand how Barocci was able to reflect in a precocious way on this venerable subject. Because the belief in Mary's immaculacy was taken for granted, it was possible for an audience to work with a more abbreviated iconography, which became a model for seventeenth century art. The model of sectarian belief is useful for understanding the universality of counterreformation belief and its enforcement in post-Tridentine Italy
