Description - Beyond the Palio by Philippa Jackson

Beyond the Palio is an interdisciplinary collection of essays examining the components and importance of ritual events and ceremonies in Renaissance Siena. Brings together studies based upon diverse disciplinary and methodological approaches to a common theme. Provides specific case studies and useful comparisons to well-known monographic studies of ritual in Florence and Venice. Concentrates on a single city to emphasize the important function of public rituals to life during the early modern period. Looks at both local ritual life and the ways it was presented to and viewed by those outside the city.
