The first scholarly study to treat the sepulchral memorials of Quattrocento Siena in a comprehensive way. These works include contributions by such noted sculptors as Jacopo della Quercia, Il Vecchietta, Neroccio de'Landi, Giovanni di Stefano, & Urbano da Cortona, as well as a number of monuments by assorted anonymous followers of Donatello. Some of these works, most notably Quercia's tomb for Ilaria del Carretto, occupy well-recognized places in the history of Italian sculpture. But various others, many of significant artistic importance as well as sociological interest, are presented here for the first time. In addition to a thorough catalogue of all traceable figured memorials from Renaissance Siena & its artistic dependecies, Prof. Robert Munman takes up such problems as the formal devt. of several sepulchral types produced there, the cultural & historical context of such tombs in general, & the attitudes of patronage that, given Siena's rich artistic resources, produced fewer of these monuments than one would have expected.

"This work examines the ways in which the culture and society of the Middle Ages impacted on the works of the Sienese poet, Cecco Angiolieri (c.1260-1312). It analyzes how Angiolieri's poetry conformed to medieval notions and practices of comicality. The study explores the means by which Cecco satirized important cultural movements of the late 13th and early 14th centuries, such as love literature and the ascendant Franciscan order. In addition, it looks at his relations with other writers of the day, including three insulting sonnets addressed to Dante Alighieri. The text shows that Angiolieri was not an isolated, ""bizarre"" figure, as some early 20th century scholars have described him, but rather an author in step with his times."

Through his research on the status of women in Florence and other Italian cities, Julius Kirshner helped to establish the socio-legal history of women in late medieval and Renaissance Italy and challenge the idea that Florentine women had an inferior legal position and civic status. In Marriage, Dowry, and Citizenship in Late Medieval and Renaissance Italy, Kirshner collects nine important essays which address these issues in Florence and the cities of northern and central Italy. Using a cross-disciplinary approach that draws on the methodologies of both social and legal history, the essays in this collection present a wealth of examples of daughters, wives, and widows acting as full-fledged social and legal actors. Revised and updated to reflect current scholarship, the essays in Marriage, Dowry, and Citizenship in Late Medieval and Renaissance Italy appear alongside an extended introduction which situates them within the broader field of Renaissance legal history.
