Editorial Reviews


"The spatial fabric of the city...becomes the vehicle for examining Florentine daily life, from confraternal processions and artisanal workshops to domestic interiors, both plebian and patrician."

"Substantial notes and bibliography expand this volume to a very hefty size. Yet unlike many large encyclopedic collections of recent years that serve mainly to digest the authors' and other longer works on the subjects at hand, this volume contains much that is new without merely descending into detail and the particular. It points to the value of accumulated local knowledge and scholarship in allowing for richer and finer-grained historical understanding. It also serves as an example of the continuing fruitful collaborations between history and the history of art that have long characterized Renaissance studies."
-Ann E. Moyer, Department of History, University of Pennsylvania, H-NET

"This welcome collection of essays on the society and art of Renaissance Florence serves as an up to date and accessible introduction to much current research in the field."
-F.W. Kent, Monash University, The Catholic Historical Review
