Product Description

Review

'Highly recommended for anyone interested in the Renaissance.' - Choice

'These fascinating snapshots of Renaissance Rome and its population are illuminating on many counts; they shed light, for example, on one of the most interesting aspects of the past, the relationship between the sexes, which is often difficult to retrieve from other official documentation. Men and women interact in these pages in ways that seem very familiar to us: they make friends, move house, go shopping, have sex, joke and argue in a seemingly contemporary fashion.' - Kate Lowe - Canadian Journal of Urban Research

'Words and Deeds in Renaissance Rome is designed as a textbook of source materials which will be of great use to teachers and students of Renaissance Italy and of interest to the general reader.' - Mary M. Gallucci - Quaderni d'italianisctica

'It is indeed a worthy piece of investigation and scholarship.' - Gregory Hanlon - The Literary Review of Canada

From the Back Cover

The social historian, searching for the basis of a culture, often turns to a study of ordinary people. Perhaps one of the most revealing places to find them is in a court of law. In this presentation of nine criminal trials of sixteenth-century Rome (1540-75), where magistrates kept verbatim records, Thomas and Elizabeth Cohen paint a lively portrait of a society, one that is reminiscent of Boccaccio. These stories, however are true.
