The Sacred Home in Renaissance Italy

Abigail Brundin, Deborah Howard, and Mary Laven

  • Explores private devotional life in the Italian Renaissance home between 1400 and 1600
  • Suggests that piety was not confined to the church and the convent but infused daily life within the household
  • Shows how families used a wide array of material objects, including books, works of art, jewellery, and relics to create the atmosphere for pious reflection and prayer
  • Moves beyond the traditional focus on Renaissance Venice, Florence, and Rome
