Paolo Viti's edited collection In Capitolo di San Lorenzo nel Quattrocento offers twenty one meticulously researched articles focused on biographical and cultural studies of the fifteenth-century canons at San Lorenzo in Florence. According to the books introduction, the goal of the studies is to make a "new contribution to the knowledge of the history of the Laurenzian Basilica and of its canons of the fifteenth century in the fuller and more complex panoramic of the history of the Florentine Church" (ix). The book achieves this goal by offering a wealth of new information about individuals prominent in the chapter of San Lorenzo and their relationship to the politics, culture, and religion of the rest of the city of Florence.
