Description - The Biography of the Object in Late Medieval and Renaissance Italy by Roberta J. M. Olson

Material culture is not static: objects are created, used and
re-used, sometimes for centuries, and their lives interact with
those of the people who made and used them. The essays in this book
discuss the ?social lives? of objects in late-medieval
and renaissance Italy, ranging from maiolica, through sculpture and
prostitutes? jewellery, to miraculous painted images.


Demonstrates the continued life of these objects well past the
deaths of their creators and patrons.

Contains a series of original contributions by young scholars,
representing a broad range of approaches.
