Forschungen zum Bruderschaftsbuch von Santa Maria dell'Anima

Supplement volume 66 of the Roman Quarterly

Located near the Piazza Navona in Rome, the Church of Santa Maria dell'Anima is known as the "German National Church". At the foundation, which was established in the 14th century, a confraternity developed in the late Middle Ages which, along with that of the Campo Santo Teutonico, is one of the most important German institutions in Renaissance Rome. The most important source of information on the development of the "Anima" in the 15th and 16th centuries is a parchment codex - the "Liber Confraternitatis Beatae Mariae De Anima Teutonicorum De Urbe". In this fraternity book, benefactors and members of the Anima fraternity are recorded by name from the first edition until modern times. This study offers systematic findings on the history of the Brotherhood Book and reconstructs its function in the 15th century.
