Florence and its university during the early Renaissance

Author: Jonathan Davies
Publisher: Leiden ; Boston : Brill, 1998.
Series: Education and society in the Middle Ages and Renaissance, v. 8.
Edition/Format:   Print book : English
Summary:
This book makes a substantial contribution to the study of Florentine history. It answers an important but hitherto unresolved question: why did the Florentine Republic keep a university in its capital city between 1385 and 1473 rather than follow the example of other Italian states in maintaining a university in a subject town?
