Repudiation of Inheritance in Renaissance Florence

Heirs, Kin, and Creditors in Renaissance Florence (Book) [show prizes]
Title: Heirs, Kin, and Creditors in Renaissance Florence
Author: Thomas Kuehn
Abstract: Visions of modernity rest in part on a distinction between inherited status (past) and achievement (present). Inheritance is taken as automatic, if not axiomatic; the recipients are passive, if grateful. This study, based on a singular source (Florentine repudiations of inheritance), reveals that inheritance was in fact a process, that heirs had options; at the least, to reject a burdensome patrimony, but also to maneuver property to others and to avoid (at times deceptively, if not fraudulently) the claims of others to portions of the estate.
