Liturgy, Sanctity and History in Tridentine Italy by Simon Ditchfield

Book Description

This book brings together for the first time detailed analyses of Tridentine liturgical reform, Counter-Reformation sanctity and the late Renaissance 'revolution' in historical method. It redraws traditional historical boundaries, and offers an original and challenging reappraisal of the relations between Rome and its local Italian churches during the 150 years after the closure of the Council of Trent in 1564. A fundamentally new context is also provided for the work of Cesare Baronio, 'father' of Counter-Reformation historical scholarship, and of his regional counterparts. The examination of the writings of one such local Baronio, Pietro Maria Campi of Piacenza (1569-1649), acts as a focus for this study, which also includes the fullest account yet published of Counter-Reformation canonisation procedure, as well as the first extended scholarly treatment of the collaborative achievement of Ferdinando Ughelli's Italia sacra, and that work's long-term implications for Italian national history writing. The book also includes a comprehensive survey of Italian local hagiography and ecclesiastical history writing of the period.

Sacred History by Simon Ditchfield Sacred History, Hardback (May 2012)

The first geographically broad, comparative survey of early modern 'sacred history', or writing on the history of the Christian Church, its leaders and saints, and its internal developments, in the two centuries from c. 1450 to c. 1650.

History and Heritage by Simon Ditchfield History and Heritage, Hardback (January 1998)

History offers us true stories about the past; heritage sells or provides us with the past we appear to desire. The dividing line between history and heritage is, however, far from clear. This collection addresses the division between history and heritage by looking at the ways in which we make use of the past, the way we consume our yesterdays.

Liturgy, Sanctity and History in Tridentine Italy by Simon Ditchfield Liturgy, Sanctity and History in Tridentine Italy, Hardback (November 1995)

A new interpretation of what the Catholic Reform meant at local diocesan level c.1550-1700.
