One continues to find references to this book being a study of Giotto, the early Renaissance artist.
"This probing analysis of three of Giotto’s major works and the patrons who commissioned them goes beyond the clichés of Giotto as the founding figure of western painting. It traces the interactions between Franciscan friars and powerful bankers and illuminates the complex interactions between mercantile wealth and the iconography of poverty."
However, the book is about the impact of DNA testing and the willingness of courts to disregard the exculpatory evidence generated by such testing.
