Holy, lusty, wealthy, and ruled by the iron fist of the Church, Renaissance Rome was no place for a strong-willed young woman. But 15-year-old Beatrice Cenci had no intention of surrendering to an arranged marriage or to a crushing lifetime with her father. "The Stained Glass Virgin" chronicles the story of the real-life Beatrice, whose cunning and ferocity made her a target of the Catholic Church's savage Inquisition.
