"Prima di Lutero": a seminar in Pisa (Project Ginzburg)
The seminar Prima di Lutero. Il dissenso religioso nel Quattrocento italiano will take place at the Scuola Normale Superiore di Pisa on 8 November 2016.
On the fifth centenary of the Reformation (1517-2017) this study day looks at the fifteenth century from an unusual perspective. Luther’s protest is unanimously treated as an subversive act towards the ecclesiastic monopoly on religion. In turning towards the religious situation in Quattrocento Italy, it is clear how the grafting of Protestant ideas there had a disciplinary effect on religious debate. 
The papers will attempt to analyse the extent to which the diffusion of the Reformation – long before the efforts of the Catholic Church in the Counterreformation – marks a standstill for Italian religious culture.

The seminar is part of Carlo Ginzburg’s Balzan research project Comparing Religions. A Historical Approach 16th-18th Centuries.
