Assistant Professor of Art History Dr. Anne Muraoka‘s book The Path of Humility: Caravaggio and Carlo Borromeo has been published by Peter Lang Publishing. The book establishes a fundamental relationship between the Franciscan humility of Archbishop of Milan Carlo Borromeo and the Roman sacred works of Caravaggio. This is the first book to consider and focus entirely upon these two seemingly anomalous personalities of the Counter-Reformation. Dr. Muraoka serves as the Art History Program Director, and is a recipient of the J. William Fulbright Fellowship (Rome, Italy, 2006-2007) and a Summer Research Fellowship (2013) from the Office of Research at ODU. She has presented her research on Caravaggio, Gabriele Paleotti, and Carlo Borromeo at several professional conferences, including the Renaissance Society of America, Sixteenth-Century Society, and College Art Association conferences.
