Abstract:The dissertation discusses the extant artifacts, contemporary documents, including biographies, chronicles, letters, and official records, and period treatises to provide the social and political context necessary to understand Caterina Sforza's cultural patronage. The analysis demonstrates that Sforza and noble women like her were active participants, not bystanders, in the cultural practices that were so important to the power negotiations of the Renaissance court. Furthermore, it provides a study of the cultural practices of a newly-established dynasty, namely the Riario of Imola and Forli.
