Synopsis:

Historians of medieval and Renaissance Italy have long held that the Florentine republic fell victim to rule by oligarchy in the early fifteenth century. Now, in the first complete analysis of the criminal law system of Florence during this crucial period, Laura Ikins Stern argues that the vitality of Florentine legal institutions gives evidence of a centralized state bureaucracy strong enough to thwart the early development of a ruling oligarchy.

Exploring the changing roles played by judicial officials as well as the evolution of Florentine government, Stern shows how these developments reflected broad-based change in society at large. From such primary documents as legal statutes and actual trial records, she provides a step-by-step explanation of trial procedure to offer a rare glimpse of inquisition methods in the secular world--from public fame initiation, through the weighing of various levels of proof, to the complex process of sentencing. And sheexplores the links between implementation of inquisition procedure, the development of the territorial state, and the struggle between republican institutions and the emerging oligarchy.

Review:

"Laura I. Stern has rummaged very skillfully among the dusty documents of medieval and Renaissance trails and sentencings. She has thereby produced a whole new way of looking at the supposed growth of oligarchy in the city-state of Florence... Never before has the relationship of the judicial branch of government to the other branches and to the whole civis been so clear. Never before have the legal proceedings made so much sense." -- Bibliotheque d'Humanisme et Renaissance
