Abstract

[Autom. eng. transl.] The essay investigates the representation of the figure of Mary Magdalene within the Passionist narrative between the 12th and 13th centuries. In the first, he intends to show how "crying at the feet" constitutes a precise modality of tears illustrated first in Bernardo's sermons, which gives it its characterizing features, then by Nicola di Chiaravalle, who takes it up and expressly ascribes it to the figure of Magdalene. In the second part he reads one of the best known Cistercian texts to see how the posture is inscribed in the event of the passion also in relation to the role played by the Virgin's cry.
