Communities of Mourning and Consolation in Florence

To investigate the social bonds caused by the common experience of grief among the merchant-citizens and humanists in fourteenth and fifteenth century Florence.

Sources to be examined include family diaries, funeral orations, dialogues, and epistles of consolation.
