Passion and Order: Restraint of Grief in the Medieval Italian Communes
In 13th-century Italian communes, efforts to change appropriate public reaction revealed connections among urban politics, gender expectations and understandings of emotionality. Lansing explores this change in thinking and practice about emotional restraint, a shift driven by politics and understood in terms of gender.
