Chapter Summary

This bibliography lists the names of primary sources referenced for this book Mysterium Magnum.The factive narrative given in the book (a hypothetical and imagined but nonetheless possible and useful itinerary) follows him through three phases in the design of a new ideal, as Michelangelo moved like a sculptor to rough the basic forms and relations of the figures decided on smaller details, and finally gave a finish to the entire surface of his work. In the process of reshaping the Holy Family as an ideal for Florentine republican society the young sculptor would refashion and ennoble both the patron and himself as a painter in his newly invented sculptural style, a stile aspro.

Keywords: Florentine republican society; Michelangelo
