520 1  "The question of whether true friendship could exist in an
       era of patronage occupied Renaissance Florentines as it 
       had the ancient Greeks and Romans whose culture they 
       admired and emulated. Rather than attempting to measure 
       Renaissance friendship against a universal ideal defined 
       by essentially modern notions of disinterestedness, 
       intimacy, and sincerity, in this book Dale Kent explores 
       the meaning of love and friendship as they were 
       represented in the fifteenth century, particularly the 
       relationship between heavenly and human friendship." "She 
       documents the elements of shared experience in friendships
       between Florentines of various occupations and ranks, 
       observing how these were shaped and played out in the 
       physical spaces of the city: the streets, street corners, 
       outdoor benches and loggias, family palaces, churches, 
       confraternal meeting places, workshops of artisans and 
       artists, taverns, dinner tables, and the baptismal font."-
