Civic Christianity in Renaissance Italy: The Hospital of Treviso, 1400-1530 by David M. D'&rea
English | Apr 26, 2007 | ISBN: 1580462391 | 228 Pages | PDF | 13,9 MB


Civic Christianity in Renaissance Italy explores the often subtle & sometimes harsh realities of life on the Venetian mainl&. Focusing on the confraternity of Santa Maria dei Battuti & its Ospedale, the book addresses a number of well-established & newly articulated historiographical questions: the governance of territorial states, the civic & religious role of confraternities, the status of women & marginalized groups, & popular religious devotion. Adapting the objectives & methods of microhistory, D'&rea has written neither a traditional history of political subjugation nor a straightforward survey of poor relief. Instead, thematic chapters survey the activities of a powerful religious brotherhood (Santa Maria dei Battuti) & document the interconnected local, regional, & international factors that fashioned the social world of Venetian subjects. Grounded in previously unexplored archival material, the book is an innovative study of the nexus between local religion & Venetian territorial power, providing scholars with this first scholarly monograph of the city that served as the keystone of Venice's mainl& empire. This original approach to the critical relationship between provincial powers & the central government also contributes to other important areas of historical inquiry, including the history of popular religion, poor relief, medicine, & education. David D'&rea is Associate Professor of History at Oklahoma State University.
