Siena - a UNESCO World Heritage site - was founded by Senius, son of Remus (the legendary co-founder of Rome) and is the home of St. Bernardino and St. Catherine. Renowned for its architectural splendour and its religious devotion, especially to the Holy Virgin Mary, Siena was dubbed by its mediaeval contemporaries 'The City of the Virgin'. Through its beautifully illustrated pages, replete with colour photographs, maps, illustrations and reproductions of original manuscripts dating from as early as the thirteenth century, Titus Burckhardt's masterpiece, SIENA: CITY OF THE VIRGIN, traces the spiritual, historical and artistic development of one of the most important cities in the mediaeval world, in whose destiny the 'spiritual development of the Christian Western world from the Middle Ages up to the present is exemplified'. Out of print for decades, this new edition has been painstakingly reproduced for a new generation to enjoy.
