Through a close study of local demographies and topographies and primary source material in the form of tax returns and notarial records, this study considers the development of urban fabrics and patterns of piety, charity and patronage in Siena's southern contado during the thirteenth and fourteenth centuries. By extension, it also presents an analysis of the art and architecture of the region during this time.
