Title : Marriage in the Mountains: The Florentine Territorial State, 1348- 1500 [the author analyzes peasant marriage patterns in three regions, one in the plains and two in the mountains; dowry prices suggest that society was less egalitarian in the mountains than in the plains; the distances between spouses suggest that the people in the mountains were much less insular than those in the plains in which a third married within their own village].
