Abstract

In 15th-century Florence, Sacra Rappresentazione was popular among all social classes. Sacred dramas were soon produced as literature and became a popular drama genre in the new and growing publishing market. TMany Renaissance authors wrote sacred dramas—including Lorenzo de’ Medici, called Il Magnifico—as they were certain that the genre could be used to guide public and political thought and behavior, and thus educate the whole city. The exhibition featured the theatrical machinery used in these performances, including crucifixes with movable arms, as well as paintings and drawings inspired by sacred dramas.
