  • Title: Charitable Women: Hans Baron's Civic Renaissance Revisited [Hans Baron's idea of the active life focused exclusively on civic politics, leaving little room for the roles of women. A wider view, encompassing social phenomena, leaves room for their participation in Renaissance Florence. Costanza, a figure in Lorenzo Medici's play for the feast of Saints John and Paul, is treated as a figure of the "mixed" life, combining devotion with a willingness to marry for the good of the Roman empire. Florentine women like Lucrezia Tornabuoni, Lorenzo's mother, led such a life of devotion and service. Title note supplied by Feminae.].
