Roman Foundations: Constructing Civic Identity in Late Medieval Italy

Completion of a book manuscript exploring the construction of urban identity in the northern and central Italian cities in the century between AD 1250 and 1350. I argue that appropriations of the classical past in the late medieval cities attest a broader awareness of classical antiquity than has traditionally been credited to late medieval Italy, and I use both textual and material evidence to evaluate the ways that the Roman past was woven into the culture, politics, and social identities of urban communities.
