Title : Il matrimonio delle beffe: Unioni finte, simulate, per gioco, Padova e Venezia, fine secolo XIV - inizi secolo XVI [The emphasis on consent in medieval ecclesiastical regulations concerning matrimony left the way open for clandestine and simulated marriages. The lack of required public formalities permitted men to mislead women they desired by simulating marriage, and a couple could pretend to be wed.

The power of individuals, even against familial interests, led, after the Council of Trent, to greater regulation of marriages by both Church and political entities. Title note supplied by Feminae].

Title : Sacramenti detestabili: La forma del matrimonio prima e dopo Trento [Medieval jurists combined natural law and Biblical knowledge, as well as sexual and emotional elements, in their teaching on marriage.

This prompted the Council of Trent to attempt a systematization of matrimonial practices, forbidding clandestine unions and emphasizing the role of the priest as witness to the exchange of consents.
