Editorial Reviews

Review

"This is an outstanding book.... Although it focuses on Rome, the work is well-contextualized both in the Italian peninsula and Europe more broadly through a masterful use of other scholars' work. The prose is delightful - erudite yet never stodgy nor pedantic. The archival base is broad and supported by other types of sources. Storey contributes to the historiography of prostitution and the Reformation in a way that will indubitably exert considerable influence on our understanding of these issues and the future work of other scholars considering these topics." -Jana Byars, RENAISSANCE QUARTERLY

Book Description

Using archival sources, this lively study sheds new light on the daily lives and material culture of ordinary prostitutes and their clients in Rome after the Counter-Reformation. It explores how and why women became prostitutes, the relationships between prostitutes and clients, and the wealth which potentially could be accumulated.

I read this book for class, but it is very accessible to the interested reader. Tessa Storey does a marvelous job of bringing to life the plight of women (Courtesans or Married) in Early-Modern Rome. She discusses their social situations, laws, and their belongings. Really a fantastic read for the casual reader and scholar alike. A must read for anyone interested in Early Modern Women, Early Modern Rome, and Women Studies.
