Description
This book offers a social history of the Italian Renaissance (1300–1560) in a cultural mien. Using tales, poems, prayers, and letters as primary sources, history professor Lauro Martines probes religious sensibilities, love, alienation, explosive feeling against political authority, the moral strains of patronage, and the close ways of urban neighborhoods. He sharpens the analysis with case studies of suicide and the seduction of propertied women and exposes the power of local angers, fears, and loyalties, as well as of misogyny, cruelty, and women's space.

"Magnificently written, almost as if Martines had invented a new language to describe and analyze the world of the Italian Renaissance cities."—Robert Wohl
