    Ex Voto

    by Samuel Butler

    Book Description

    Samuel Butler (1835 - 1902) was a Victorian novelist who wrote in many genres. The Way of All Flesh was his most famous novel. Besides fiction Butler also wrote on evolution, Christian orthodoxy, Italian art, literary history and translated the Iliad and The Odyssey. An ex-voto is a votive offering to a saint or divinity after the fulfillment of a vow or promise. The offering is often made in a chapel where the person wants to give thanks or seeks grace. Pilgrimages often include shrines decorated with ex-votos. Ex Voto: An Account of the Sacro Monte or New Jerusalem at Varallosesia with Some Notice of Tabachetti's Remaining work at the Sanctuary of Crea is a study of one of the most beautiful areas of religious sanctuaries in northern Italy. The Sacri Monti of Piedmont and Lombardy are a series of nine groups of chapels and other architectural features created in northern Italy during the seventeenth and late sixteenth century
