Beyond the Palio is an interdisciplinary collection of essays examining the components and importance of ritual events and ceremonies in Renaissance Siena. • Brings together studies based upon diverse disciplinary and methodological approaches to a common theme. • Provides specific case studies and useful comparisons to well–known monographic studies of ritual in Florence and Venice. • Concentrates on a single city to emphasize the important function of public rituals to life during the early modern period. • Looks at both local ritual life and the ways it was presented to and viewed by those outside the city.
