Church Times October 2004

‘This book is sexy. It is beautifully produced, from its cunning jacket design, recalling a confusing palimpsest out of which rises the emblem of the piarist Order (the text’s object of exposure), to the charming photo of its author, known from the preface as not only a laureate of the European Research Institute in Florence, but also a wearer of short skirts.’

‘Liebreich is a superb story-teller; yet the way in which her narrative expands to provide contextual details and historical analysis marks this as a serious work of scholarship.’

Revd. Jonathan Boardman, Chaplain of All Saints’ Rome
