'Pulchra es, amica mea'
Pulchra Es, Amica Mea is a program dedicated to the figure of Mary.
The cult of the Virgin Mary was highly developed by the end of the Middle Ages and throughout the 14th and 15th centuries we see a rise in devotional material written to Our Lady portraying her as a woman, a mother, a lover, as well as a window to Our Saviour.
