The Church in Lucca has been well served by recent scholarship. This chapter is not concerned with the history of the Church per se, but rather with the integration of religious and secular life in the restored republic. At the simplest level, the problems of the Lucchese Church perfectly reflect those of the republic itself during the period of plague, famine, devastation from war, and depopulation that followed the deposition of Paolo Guinigi.

Keywords:   Lucca, Lucchese Church, religious life, secular life, republic, Paolo Guinigi
