Portraying the Prince in the Renaissance

The portrayal of princes plays a central role in the historical literature of the European Renaissance. The sixteen contributions collected in this volume examine such portrayals in a broad variety of historiographical, biographical, and poetic texts. It emerges clearly that historical portrayals were not essentially bound by generic constraints but instead took the form of res gestae or historiae, discrete or collective biographies, panegyric, mirrors for princes, epic poetry, orations, even commonplace books – whatever the occasion called for. Beyond questions of genre, the chapters focus on narrative strategies and the transformation of ancient, medieval, and contemporary authors, as well as on the influence of political, cultural, intellectual, and social contexts. Four broad thematic foci inform the structure of this book: the virtues ascribed to the prince, the cultural and political pretensions inscribed in literary portraits, the historical and literary models on which these portraits were based, and the method that underlay them. The volume is rounded out by a critical summary that considers the portrayal of princes in humanist historiogrpahy from the point of view of transformation theory.

Verfolgt von der Inquisition, traten im Königreich Neapel in den Jahren um 1292 tausende von Juden zum Christentum über: die einzige Massenkonversion von Juden zum Christentum außerhalb der iberischen Halbinsel und der spanischen Herrschaftsgebiete während des Mittelalters. Bis Mitte des 16. Jahrhunderts sind die konvertierten Juden aber auch ihre Nachkommen in verschiedenen Regionen des süditalienischen Festlandes unter Bezeichnungen wie „Neofiti“ (von griechisch: „Neophytos“ = „Neugepflanzter“) „Christiani Novi“ bzw. „Cristiani Novelli“ belegt. Auch Generationen später wurden die Abkömmlinge der Konvertiten also als Neuankömmlinge in der christlichen Gesellschaft markiert. Sie gehörten dazu und gleichzeitig doch nicht. „Die Stadt der Neuchristen“ behandelt die Geschichte der konvertierten Juden des Königreichs Neapel und ihrer Nachkommen erstmals monographisch und nimmt die spannungsreichen Prozessen von Inklusion und Exklusion im Verlauf von über 200 Jahren in den Blick. Dabei verbindet die Studie die Makroperspektive auf das ganze Königreich mit der mikrologischen Untersuchung der Geschichte der Neuchristen in einer Stadt: dem apulischen Trani, der „Metropole“ der Neuchristen im italienischen Süden während des Spätmittelalters. Multiperspektivisch analysiert sie politische Stellung, Netzwerke, Räume, Karrieren sowie religiöse Lebensführung der konvertierten Juden und ihrer Nachkommen ebenso wie ihren Ort in der zeitgenössischen Wissensordnung des Königreichs Neapel. Gleichzeitig fragt das Buch danach, warum die Neuchristen
Conspiracy Literature in Early Renaissance Italy

Conspiracy has been a political phenomenon throughout history, relevant to any form of power from antiquity to the post-modern era. This means of resistance against power was prevalent during the Renaissance, and the Italian fifteenth century, in particular, can be regarded as an 'age of plots'. This book offers the first full-length investigation of Italian Renaissance literature on the topic of conspiracy. This literature covered a range of different genres and it enjoyed widespread diffusion during the second half of the fifteenth century, when the development of this literary production was connected with the affirmation of centralized political thought and princely ideology in Italian states. The centrality of conspiracies also emerges in the sixteenth century in Machiavelli's work, where the topic is closely interlaced with problems of building political consensus and management of power. This volume presents case studies of the most significant humanist texts (representative of different states, literary genres, and of prominent authors—Alberti, Poliziano, Pontano—and minor, yet important, literati), and it also investigates Machiavelli's political and historical works. Through interdisciplinary analysis, this study traces the evolution of literature on plots in early Renaissance Italy. It points out the key function of the classical tradition and the recurring narrative

The 'Commentaries' of Pope Pius II (1458-1464) and the Crisis of the Fifteenth-Century Papacy

Type: BOOK - Published: 2015-10-05 - Publisher: University of Toronto Press
Written in the mid-fifteenth century, Pope Pius II’s Commentaries are the only known autobiography of a reigning pontiff and a fundamental text in the history of Renaissance humanism. In this book, Emily O’Brien positions Pius’ expansive autobiographical text within that century’s contentious debate over ecclesiastical sovereignty. Presenting the Commentaries as Pius’ response to the crisis of authority, legitimacy, and relevance that was engulfing the Renaissance papacy, she shows how the Commentaries function as both an aggressive assault on the papal monarchy’s chief opponents and a systematic defense of Pius’s own troubled pontificate and his pre-papal career. Illustrating how the language, imagery, and ideals of secular power inform Pius’ apologetic self-portrait, The Commentaries of Pope Pius II (1458–1464) and the Crisis of the Fifteenth-Century Papacy demonstrates the role that Pius and his writings played in the evolution of the Renaissance papacy.

Pontano’s Virtues
Language: en
Pages: 336
Authors: Matthias Roick
Categories: Philosophy
Type: BOOK - Published: 2017-02-23 - Publisher: Bloomsbury Publishing
First secretary to the Aragonese kings of Naples, Giovanni Pontano (1429-1503) was a key figure of the Italian Renaissance. A poet and a philosopher of high repute, Pontano's works offer a reflection on the achievements of fifteenth-century humanism and address major themes of early modern moral and political thought. Taking his defining inspiration from Aristotle, Pontano wrote on topics such as prudence, fortune, magnificence, and the art of pleasant conversation, rewriting Aristotle's Ethics in the guise of a new Latin philosophy, inscribed with the patterns of Renaissance culture. This book shows how Pontano's rewriting of Aristotelian ethics affected not only his philosophical views, but also his political life and his place in the humanist movement. Drawing on Pontano's treatises, dialogues, letters, poems and political writings, Matthias Roick presents us with the first comprehensive study of Pontano's moral and political thought, offering novel insights into the workings of Aristotelian virtue ethics in the early modern period.

Volume III of The Oxford History of Historical Writing contains essays by leading scholars on the writing of history globally during the early modern era, from 1400 to 1800. The volume proceeds in geographic order from east to west, beginning in Asia and ending in the Americas. It aims at once to provide a selective but authoritative survey of the field and, where opportunity allows, to provoke cross-cultural comparisons. This is the third of five volumes in a series that explores representations of the past from the beginning of writing to the present day, and from all over the world.
