Summary

  • How did religion colour daily life in the Italian Renaissance home? Peering into the privacy of family rites of passage - childbirth, marriage, and death - the authors expose patterns of piety that helped individuals to confront both the dangers and delights of everyday life, using such material objects as books, artworks, jewellery, and relics.

Notes

  • Includes bibliographical references (pages 317-353) and index.
