Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

During the Renaissance, there were two centres of art, culture and mercantile power in Italy: Florence, and Venice. This is a sourcebook of promary materials, almost none previously available in English, for the history of the city-state of Venice. The time period covers the apogee of Venetian power and reputation to the beginnings of its decline in the 1630s. Sources used include diaries, chronicles, Inquisitorial records, literature, legislation, and contemporary descriptions, and are organized in sections by theme and accompanied by brief introductions.Originally published by Basil Blackwell, 1992.

Book News Annotation:

Some 150 mostly heretofore unpublished document excerpts describe the Renaissance city-state of Venice, and elucidate aspects of its authority and government; law, order, and social policy; wealth; faces of religion; social orders; charity and the poor; "foreign" residents; cultural life; and visual arts. Includes several illustrations and a glossary of terms. Chambers is with the Warburg Institute.
