This book explores three of these Baroque chapels to show how Bernini achieved his remarkable effects.

Giovanni Careri examines the ways in which the artist integrated the disparate forms of architecture, painting, and sculpture into a coherent space for devotion, and then shows how this accomplishment was understood by religious practitioners.In the Fonseca Chapel, the Albertoni Chapel, and the church of Sant Andrea al Quirinale, all in Rome, Careri identifies three types of ensemble and links each to a particular spiritual journey.

Using contemporary theories in anthropology, film, and reception aesthetics, he shows how Berninis formal mechanisms established an emotional dynamic between the beholder and a specific arrangement of forms. As an inquiry into the ways art in a certain historical context transformed and was transformed by its audience, Bernini: Flights of Love, the Art of Devotion is also a penetrating investigation into the aesthetic principles of multimedia composition.
