An extensive study based on previously unpublished documentation offers a new perspective on topics such as the Siena reform movement inspired by Bishop de’ Ricci and led by Fabio de Vecchi; the local Jewish community examined from the socio-economic standpoint and considering the post-emancipation reactions; the patriotic movement of Siena, after the finding of a «Nota dei Giacobini, Discoli, Irreligiosi della Città e Diocesi di Siena» was found, which was the only one known today that was not burnt in 1799.
