Summary In Marriage, Dowry, and Citizenship in Late Medieval and Renaissance Italy, Kirshner collects nine important essays which address the socio-legal history of women in Florence and the cities of northern and central Italy
Notes "The nine studies gathered in this volume appeared over a twenty-six-year period, from 1985 to 2011. Originally, they were published as contributions to volumes honoring the research and careers of colleagues and the proceedings of conferences held in Europe. Allowing for their diverse origins, the studies share a common focus on three interrelated subjects: marriage, women's property, and citizenship in medieval and Renaissance Italy (1200-1550)."--Introduction
