    Abstract

    The status of facts, objects and things has recently been subject to important theoretical analyses. This article picks up on such scholarship and turns to the Renaissance articulation of facts in accounting for the fabrication of social and civic life. It does so by examining the strong links forged between lawyers and those poets who might be described as apologists of poesy. What emerges is an account of facts founded on the energy of the material world and on their connectedness to other articles within the social world. Furthermore, through the process of inquiry, tribunals are themselves turned into objects that are articulated (joined) to the energy of the thing under inquiry.
