In this piece, Sr. Arlene Woods' conducts an historic and iconographic study of a medieval baldacchino-puteal ensemble. Her article is particularly interesting when considered within the cultural climate of the 19th century where the possession of a structure of such scale and history was thought quite stylish and very much in vogue with the popular interest in the antique.
