Medieval Lucca

And the Evolution of the Renaissance State

M. E. Bratchel

  • The first scholarly study to cover the history of the entire Lucca region from classical antiquity to the end of the fifteenth century
  • Examines both city and countryside to redress the overemphasis on the city in Italian historiography
  • Provides both a detailed archive-based study and an important contribution to wider debates about power structures and the differences between city-states and the new territorial states in fourteenth-century Italy
