Abstract: 

Miles demonstrates how Signorelli, in presenting a specifically Augustinian vision of the resurrection body, directly refuted the view that nude human bodies, especially those of women, signify immorality. Thus the painter articulated his own theological position about the sacredness of the human body through his painting, i.e., he did theology via his art. (RG)
