Overview

This lavishly illustrated book looks at the art and architecture of episcopal palaces as expressions of power and ideology. Tracing the history of the bishop's residence in the urban centers of northern Italy over the Middle Ages, Maureen C. Miller asks why this once rudimentary and highly fortified structure called a domus became a complex and elegant "palace" (palatium) by the late twelfth century.

Editorial Reviews

Joseph Rykwert
Maureen C. Miller's The Bishop's palace is welcome—sharp, clear, learned...
Times Literary Supplement
From the Publisher
"Maureen Miller has walked innumerable cities and mastered some exceedingly difficult historiographical issues. Her explorations of the medieval urban texture is a revelation—the Episcopal palace was not simply the seat of religious administration, it was the locus in which spiritual, social, and political life in the early Italian communes was worked out. This is an exciting and original book."—Duane J. Osheim, University of Virginia
