Our Lady of Sorrow statue in Naples, Italy, Joanna Ebenstein, 2013

This evening’s talk focuses on the presence of the Sorrowful Mother in art and popular culture, from the Italian peninsula to immigrant communities in the United States. Mallorie Vaudoise will explore how this figure maintains both a privileged status in official Catholic teaching as well as a peculiar power in folk practices.

Vaudoise is a NYC-based spiritualist of Italian descent. She is also the author of Italian Folk Magic, a blog about devotional practices from Southern Italy and Sicily.
