Marriage, with its mundane concerns and promise of sexual satisfaction, was deemed a distraction and was discouraged. It was not until the twelfth century that the pope made marriage a sacrament. The marriage of Mary and Joseph, understood to be chaste and celibate, was held up as a model for married couples. Although the location of the ceremony is non-descript here, it bears noting that weddings were not usually performed inside a church. Because unions between two households signaled a redistribution of wealth in the form of a dowry and possibly a consolidation of political power, weddings were carried out at the door of the church in view of the communities they would affect. After banns, a church announcement of a forthcoming wedding, were read publicly, neighbors were invited to comment. Assuming there were no objections, the couple exchanged vows, then entered the church to celebrate mass. ", "Dedication" : "Blanton Museum of Art, The University of Texas at Austin, Archer M.

classical sources, Nuptiae is one in a series of prints identifying the activities of virtuous men. It is notable in part because it advocates marriage, an institution that had previously been eschewed as an impediment to the preferred contemplative life, for aristocratic men. By the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries some philosophers taught that families were microcosms of the state, and princes should marry in order to promote peace and stability in their kingdoms. Marriage was not entered into for personal reasons, but rather to fulfill civic obligations.
