Convent Architecture in Renaissance Florence

My project examines Florentine Renaissance convent architecture as the setting of a range of private and public activities that expressed Florentine attitudes toward these communities and the women who inhabited them. I will examine the documentation and surviving built fabric of convent complexes, and primary sources that describe how convent spaces functioned. I will focus on the communities of Sant'Ambrogio, Santa Caterina di San Gaggio, Le Murate, and San Pier Maggiore, where public rituals intersected with convent architecture. The result will be a monograph that considers how Florentine contexts informed convents' form and function between the fourteenth and sixteenth centuries.
