Clearly establishing uniquely Sienese artistic agendas and vocabulary, the essays collected here broaden our understanding of the intersection of art, politics and religion in Siena by revisiting its medieval origins and exploring its continuing role in the Renaissance. Engaging issues of the politicization of art in Sienese painting, sculpture, architecture and urban design, the volume challenges the still-prevalent myth of Siena's cultural and artistic conservatism after the mid-fourteenth century.
