The Genealogical Gaze: Family Identities and Family Archives in the Fourteenth to Seventeenth Centuries

Abstract

In Renaissance Florence, early modern England, and the Netherlands during the Golden Age the "genealogical gaze" transfigured family archives into a cultural patrimony to be preserved, expanded, and transferred to future generations. Descendants, by appropriating the object of that genealogical gaze, embraced the values and modalities of the "paradigm of patrimoine."
