Description: In 1363 the Black Death struck central Italy for the second time, causing a detectable shift in notions of the afterlife and patterns of charitable giving. Throughout Tuscany and Umbria, patricians and peasants alike abandoned their previous practice of dividing bequests into small sums, combining them instead into last gifts to enhance their "fame and glory" and that of their lineages. Illustrative of the new mentality, religious art patronage spread to new social classes, touching even peasants, who sought to be represented "in their very likeness" at the feet of their patron saints.

In his award-winning study, Death and Property in Siena, historian Samuel K. Cohn, Jr. used close analysis of last wills to chart transformations in mentalities over a sixhundred-year history. In The Cult of Remembrance and the Black Death, he applies the same methods to compare six Italian city-states -- Arezzo, Florence, Perugia, Assisi, Pisa, and Siena -- showing the rise of a new Renaissance cult of remembrance.
