An account of the deeds of Italian Carmelite nun and mystic Saint Mary Magdalene de' Pazzi (1566-1607), Puccini's work was written with the specific intention of developing her cult throughout Europe and enlivening the process of her canonisation. Born to one of the wealthiest and most distinguished families of Renaissance Florence, de' Pazzi was accepted as a novice at the Monastero di S. Maria degli Angeli at the age of seventeen; here she experienced numerous ecstasies and was said to be capable of divining the future, numerous miracles were attributed to her. The process of her beatification was begun in 1610 under Pope Paul V, and completed under Pope Urban VIII in the year 1626. She was canonized by Pope Clement IX in 1669.
