abstract

In the early modern centuries, a number of countries in Europe established pioneering laws dedicated to the protection of what they thought of as ‘heritage’. These early forms of safeguarding reflected aesthetic perceptions, cultural backgrounds, political interests, as well as economic and religious concerns of each relevant place. This study analyses the most significant of these early decrees from a comparative perspective, aiming to understand the development of the first concepts and instruments elaborated to protect antiquities and artefacts in fifteenth- to eighteenth-century Europe. As will be argued, some of these early constructs prove to be still valid and fully effective at the present time.
