Inno­va­tion in the Ital­ian counter-ref­or­ma­tion
BuchcoverThe endur­ing “black leg­end” of the Ital­ian Counter-Ref­or­ma­tion, which has held sway in both schol­ar­ly and pop­u­lar cul­ture, main­tains that the Coun­cil of Trent ush­ered in a cul­tur­al dark age in Italy, snuff­ing out the spec­tac­u­lar cre­ative pro­duc­tion of the Renais­sance. As a result, the decades fol­low­ing Trent have been most­ly over­looked in Ital­ian lit­er­ary stud­ies, in par­tic­u­lar. The thir­teen essays of Inno­va­tion in the Ital­ian Counter-Ref­or­ma­tion present a rad­i­cal recon­sid­er­a­tion of lit­er­ary pro­duc­tion in post-Tri­den­tine Italy. With par­tic­u­lar atten­tion to the much-maligned tra­di­tion of spir­i­tu­al lit­er­a­ture, the volume’s con­trib­u­tors weave lit­er­ary analy­sis togeth­er with reli­gion, the­ater, art, music, sci­ence, and gen­der to demon­strate that the lit­er­a­ture of this peri­od not only mer­its study but is pos­i­tive­ly inno­v­a­tive. Con­trib­u­tors include such renowned crit­ics as Vir­ginia Cox and Amedeo Quon­dam, two of the lead­ing schol­ars on the Ital­ian Counter-Ref­or­ma­tion.
