Domestic Institutional Interiors in Early Modern Europe
Sandra Cavallo, Silvia Evangelisti
Ashgate, 2009 - Architecture - 267 pages
Early modern Europe witnessed the expansion of religious, charitable and educational structures, yet little is known about the domestic experience of those who lived in convents or almshouses, orphanages or colleges. Through specific case studies dealing with both Catholic and Protestant settings, this interdisciplinary collection explores the institutional, individual and family strategies that contributed to shaping the spatial and material dimensions of institutional life and expands considerably the notion of 'domestic interior'.
