Abstract

Le Livre de bon amour raconte et chante, prie et plaisante, tout au long de plus de 1600 strophes, la plupart écrite en une adaptation du « métier de clergie » (les vers ont de 14 à 16 syllabes), les autres selon des formes lyriques inspirées de diverses traditions. Plus contemporaine de Pétrarque que de Dante, son écriture est portée par le désir spirituel du salut et par la joie carnavalesque d’un érotisme parfois cru, parfois voilé. Il puise aux sources de la tradition scolastique, mais ne dédaigne pas une veine plus paillarde. Un archiprêtre y est mis en scène, qui est également le narrateur d’aventures galantes moins biographiques que destinées à illustrer la casuistique amoureuse de façon vivante, joyeuse et légère. La mort, cependant, est plusieurs fois au rendez-vous et fait l’objet d’une méditation pleine d’émotion. Au Moyen Âge, la vie n’est pas loin de la mort et vice-versa. De là, la ronde dans laquelle le Livre entraîne son lecteur, d’aventure en aventure, de méditation en méditation. Il s’encadre mystiquement de « Joies de Marie », deux au début, deux à la fin, où s’arrête cette traduction. Entre ces prières musicales se déploie la ronde du temps, de mai à février et de février à mai, en un éternel retour du printemps si propice à l’amour. Pas de solution de continuité entre les expressions de l’amour divin et celles de l’amour charnel, quasiment bestial lors des rencontres de montagnardes. L’amour est un, à chacun de savoir à quel niveau le prendre, pour gagner le paradis. Ce n’est pas le Livre qui le commandera ; conscient de la relativité des points de vue, il remet au lecteur subtil la responsabilité du sens à trouver dans l’écriture et celle de ses choix. A-t-il été écrit en prison, comme le déclare au XVe siècle le copiste du manuscrit de Salamanque, l’un des trois principaux où est conservé ce chef d’œuvre médiéval ? En tout cas, il ne l’a pas été d’une seule traite (1330-1343), même s’il forme un tout plus cohérent que la diversité des motifs abordés ne le laisse croire au premier abord. L’identité précise de son auteur reste un mystère. Les archives de Hita ont disparu, pour la période où le dit Juan Ruiz aurait pu en être l’Archiprêtre. Plusieurs personnages, sortis d’autres documents, pourraient être ce Juan Ruiz qui fait rimer son nom avec « raiz », racine, en un projet poétique de fondation et avec un clin d’œil, peut-être, sur une érotique identité, bien propre à un homme « né sous le signe de Vénus ».

Abstract

This book contains the proceedings of the first international conference organised by the Centro di Studi sulla civiltà comunale of the University of Florence, and offers a fine overview of the contribution made by international historiography to the history of the Italian Comunes. One of the most significant periods in the country's past is addressed here by some of the leading international specialists through the reconstruction of the approaches, issues and outcomes of the principal foreign historiographies (German, French, American, Spanish and English). The result is a fairly articulated picture of how the civilisation of the Comune has been treated and appraised over time outside Italy. Consequently, the book is offered as an updated tool of historiographic reflection and as a useful yardstick for studies devoted to the European urban world.

Conflitti, paci e vendette nell'Italia comunale

Abstract

This book is a collection of seven essays with an introduction by the editor. The contributions propose first-hand studies of some of the less researched aspects of the history of the Italian communes: the practices of conflict, vendetta and pacification. The variety of different ways of resolving conflicts brought to light by the studies for the various civic and rural contexts (Mantua, Parma, Pisa, Lucca, Florence and the Valdinievole), between the beginning of the thirteenth and the mid fourteenth century, indicate how normal such social relations were, the widespread nature of the feud and the legitimisation and centrality of the culture of the vendetta within the political arena of the commune. The book hence offers a precious contribution for a review of the prevalent narration of the vendetta in late mediaeval Italian society.

Abstract

This volume is devoted to one of the major aristocratic lineages of northern Italy in the later middle ages. The Rossi, whose political and social eminence dates back to the communal age, built in the Parmense a powerful lordship, based both on their estates and fortresses and on a vast patronage network spread over the territory and in the town: and the power of the family, though diminished after the crisis in the relations with the Sforza in 1482, was restored on partially different foundations during the Italian Wars. The essays collected in this book explore the complexity of the Rossi "little seignorial state", focusing on its internal constitution, on its exterior relations and on its artistic and cultural features between the mid-fourteenth and the early sixteenth century.

Abstract

The organisation of the territory is the outcome of strategies of varying scope, in which a number of agents interact to shape out the areas of operation. The Liguria reality is probed here through four different situations - separated in chronological terms but sharing the poor visibility and limited efficacy of the fortified settlements. These focus on Genoa, both in the definition of its hinterland between the tenth and the eleventh centuries, and in establishing the bulwarks of coastal territorial expansion in the twelfth; the powerful groups of feudal lords who remoulded the rural settlement layout in the thirteenth century; finally, a village of the hinterland explored right through to the modern age.

Abstract

In a perspective of local history that combines problem analysis with a reconstruction accessible even to non-specialists, this book addresses the economy, society and institutions of a rural community of the Tuscan Apennines. The community of Raggiolo is portrayed over a long span of time ranging from the late centuries of the Middle Ages up to the end of the eighteenth century. We are thus offered a picture of the Casentino mountains which reveals - in the centuries-old intertwining of mountain economy, social equality, sharing of the management of the local administration and the goods belonging to the collectivity - one of the main reasons for the resistance to change which was to mark the end of the ancien regime.

Abstract

This book proposes a series of studies devoted to one of the most important areas of political and institutional history, that of the relations between the political dimension and the exercise of justice. Centred on the experience of Florence, but open to comparison with that of other parts of Italy, the investigation brings to light how, in the transformation of the political framework of the age of the Comune to that of the territorial State between the thirteenth and the fifteenth centuries, in the relations between the powers active in the territory the sphere of justice offered scope for debate and political competition as well as leverage for legitimisation. One of the intentions of the book is, in fact, to contribute to revising the concept of justice, going beyond the traditional vision of public function and an aspect of the progressive affirmation of the State.

Abstract

The PhD course in Mediaeval History of the University of Florence is one of the oldest in the Italian university circuit. Founded in 1983 by Girolamo Arnaldi, Elio Conti and Raoul Manselli, all the cycles of the courses were launched, achieving results of the greatest significance in the sphere of research. Over the years, about sixty young students and a couple of dozen teachers have given shape to a human and intellectual experience based on exchange and the acceptance of different points of view. Traced out in this book is a brief history of the first twenty years, rendering account of the activities fostered and the research carried out, and providing the scientific and bibliographic profiles of each member.
