The Death of the Child Valerio Marcello

The Death of the Child Valerio Marcello

Autore: Margaret L. King ,

Numero di pagine: 484

Margaret King shows what the death of a little boy named Valerio Marcello over five hundred years ago can tell us about his time. This child, scion of a family of power and privilege at Venice's time of greatness, left his father in a state of despair so profound and so public that it occasioned an outpouring of consoling letters, orations, treatises, and poems. In these documents, we find a firsthand account, richly colored by humanist conventions and expectations, of the life of the fifteenth-century boy, the passionate devotion of his father, the feelings of his brothers and sisters, the striking absence of his mother. The father's story is here as well: the career of a Venetian nobleman and scholar, patron and soldier, a participant in Venice's struggle for dominion in the north of Italy. Through these sources also King traces the cultural trends that made Marcello's century famous. Her work enlarges our view of the literature of consolation, which had a distinctive tradition in Venice, and shifting attitudes toward death from the late Middle Ages onward. For the depth and acuity of its insights into political, cultural, and private life in fifteenth-century Venice, this book...

Studia Patristica: Historica, Theologica et Philosophica, Critica et Philologica

Autore: Elizabeth A. Livingstone , Ea Livingstone ,

Numero di pagine: 520

Papers presented at the Twelfth International Conference on Patristic Studies held in Oxford 1995 (see also Studia Patristica 30, 31, 32 and 33). The successive sets of Studia Patristica contain papers delivered at the International Conferences on Patristic Studies, which meet for a week once every four years in Oxford; they are held under the aegis of the Theology Faculty of the University. Members of these conferences come from all over the world and most offer papers. These range over the whole field, both East and West, from the second century to a section on the Nachleben of the Fathers. The majority are short papers dealing with some small and manageable point; they raise and sometimes resolve questions about the authenticity of documents, dates of events, and such like, and some unveil new texts. The smaller number of longer papers put such matters into context and indicate wider trends. The whole reflects the state of Patristic scholarship and demonstrates the vigour and popularity of the subject.

The Dialogue of the Seraphic Virgin Catherine of Siena

The Dialogue of the Seraphic Virgin Catherine of Siena

Autore: Saint Catherine of Siena , Aeterna Press ,

Numero di pagine: 344

“I am persuaded,” said Claude Bernard, “that the day will come, when the man of science, the philosopher and the poet will all understand each other.” Whatever we may think of this prophecy, we most of us feel that the one-sided absolutism of the past, whether religious or scientific, is no longer possible. The inevitable vehemence of the reaction against bigotry and superstition has, in a measure, spent itself, and the best minds of the present, influenced by the spirit of Socrates’ claim to wisdom, are cautiously and tentatively feeling their way to a nicer adjustment of the scales of thought.

The Revolt of the Scribe in Modern Italian Literature

The Revolt of the Scribe in Modern Italian Literature

Autore: Thomas Erling Peterson ,

Numero di pagine: 359

The Revolt of the Scribe in Modern Italian Literature offers a perceptive re-assessment of Italian literary culture, focusing on the nature of modernity through the literature of those who revolt against established norms and expectations. By exploring selected works from authors such as Deledda, Foscolo, Ungaretti, Bertolucci, and Valeri, Thomas E. Peterson considers the categories of vatic poetry, the feminine voice, and the writings of those situated on Italy's cultural periphery. As practitioners of literary Italian, Peterson argues that these authors are conscious of their role in preserving both language and tradition during a period of great upheaval and national transformation. At the same time, they use their writings to move towards change, combat alienation, and reconfigure the self in relation to the community. In treating the act of authorship in terms of its cultural and didactic significance, Peterson successfully bridges the gap between traditional literary critical monographs and the trend toward cultural studies.

The "death” of lunatic asylum: chronicle of a liberation

Autore: Luigi Attenasio , Mariella Ciani , Angelo di Gennaro ,

C'era una volta il manicomio… Quella vergogna è cancellata ma non dimenticare è necessario, oggi più che mai. Nel libro si narra di questa grande conquista di civiltà. La nostra psichiatria, “quella della 180”, è salute mentale di comunità, aperta a pratiche e saperi confinanti: siamo a Scuola, con Mariella Ciani e gli studenti di Udine contro il pregiudizio e lo stigma. Poi parlano Antonia e gli ospiti di Cà del vento, Gianfranco, Luigi, Silvia e a Strasburgo con Laura, Mario, Anna… “si sogna”, come in una fiaba, una Europa libera, solidale, democratica, di pace, una “Europa senza manicomi”.
