The Venetian Republic, a prosperous and powerful state in Renaissance Europe, cultivated an image of stability and liberty. This image-making is on display in a Yale Law Library exhibition, "Representing the Law in the Most Serene Republic: Images of Authority from Renaissance Venice." The exhibition draws on the outstanding collection of Italian law books in the Yale Law Library's Rare Book Collection, along with drawings and medals from the Yale University Art Gallery and reproductions from the Beinecke Rare Book & Manuscript Library.
