Applying domus-logic to holy figures

"Holy figures were also celebrated by the people for their place in the domus: the most cherished and important Catholic figures in Italian Harlem were sacred figures in domus relationships. The Madonna held her infant in her arms; Saints Cosmos and Damian were brothers who died together; Saint Ann was loved as the mother of the Madonna. Covello discovered that southern Italians conceptualized the Trinity as the Holy Family, with Sant'Anna, Jesus' nonna (Grandmohter), always in the background as an additional figure." Robert Orsi, The Madonna of 115th Street, p. 86.
