COVER NOTE: The illustration on the cover is Artemisia Gentileschis Judith Slaying Holofernes (Naples Version), painted circa 1612-1613. Gentileschi was the most prominent female artist of the period, and is referred to in 1634: The Galileo Affair. The Biblical episode involving Judith and her maidservant killing the Assyrian tyrant Holofernes was an immensely popular theme for painters and sculptors of the Renaissance and the early modern era. Different versions were done by Donatello, Tintoretto, Hemessen, Caravaggio, Mantegna and other artists of the time. A famous version was also done in 1901 by Gustav Klimt.
