Rural Communities in Renaissance Tuscany: Religious Identities and Local Loyalties. Turnhout: Brepols, 2008. Pp. xii, 234. ISBN: 978-2-503-52337-8. This excellent, compact monograph in the Europa Sacra series published under the auspices of Monash University, Australia, closely analyzes three very different areas within the Florentine territorial state. Presented in two parts, the data and conclusions drawn from them further the trajectory of several recent studies examining the mechanisms and relations of Florentine suzerainty over 12,000 square kilometers of land containing 2100 separate communities.

At the conclusion of the fifteenth century and well into the first half of the sixteenth, Florence underwent radical political and social transformations. The republic, which had nurtured the cultural phenomenon of the Renaissance, was finally overthrown and the Medici returned triumphant as outright rulers of the once-free commune. Throughout this period, the administration of the Florentine territory continued to be one of the single most important issues faced by successive Florentine governments, and yet very little is known about the people they governed. Accounting for over two-thirds of the total population, the inhabitants of small rural communities played a significant part in the shaping of this territory. This study explores the nature of these communities and the relationships they forged with the central authorities; it provides an overview of the extraordinary diversity of rural communes, and looks in detail at three areas of the Florentine territory. The communes of Gangalandi, Scarperia, and the communities located in the Pistoian mountains provide the vivid contexts in which the fluid natures of local religious, social, and political ties are examined. The character of each of these rural communities was unique, challenging not only the Florentine government's mechanisms of control, but our own understanding of the 'peasant' as a social category. Hewlett demonstrates that these communes were not simplistic social organizations, but rather vibrant communities of individuals who pursued a vast range of different activities within a series of complex cultural networks. Rural Communities in Renaissance Tuscany also addresses the importance of religion to these communities; an exciting addition to a field that has been until now dominated by the study of urban religious practice.
