The question is whether there was a real risk that they would be, and here the evidence is twofold. Taking his time, Ginzburg unearths elements of a peasant oral culture ginzbugg is largely unrecorded except in Inquisition records.

Ho cominciato a leggere e mi sono sentita un’ignorantona di prima categoria.

Menocchio was a literate peasant gusaos rarity so it’s tempting to This mirco-history concerns the life and times of one Domenico Scandella, a miller known as ‘Menocchio’, who was put on trial during the Inquisition for conceiving of and promulgating ginzburh blasphemous cosmos in a town of the north-eastern Italian state of Friuli.

And what he read he recast in terms familiar to him, as in his own version of the creation: Oct 02, Barbara Hansen rated it liked it Shelves: Again a misreading of a text. The poor man was put on trial twice, the second time being condemned to burn ques the stake.

Carlo – I am sorry, but your book ‘The Cheese and the Worms’ was a chore to finish. Sure, he was uncommonly literate, and yes it was somewhat interesting to see how his reading manifested itself into his belief system thus justifying fears that when peasants get a hold of books they are going to come to their own gizburg regarding their contents, rather than those the clergy so dogmatically thrust upon them.

It’s so easy to access books about the rich and powerful in Renaissance Italy; seldom can one get a detailed presentation of person living a fairly common life. E allora dovevo proprio metterci le mie rapaci zampette sopra.

We know enough, however, to look more closely at the cathedral of Western Christendom, to notice the cracks in its foundation and in its stained glass, cracks that seemed to but did not really appear and suddenly crumble in the Enlightenment. We have no way of knowing who is right. This is a microhistory of a sixteenth century Italian miller, whose heretical beliefs brought him to the attention of the Inquisition. While the beliefs of the hierarchies can be listed and referenced to published works the actual beliefs of their followers remain unknown unless they happened to run foul of the heresy courts in one jurisdiction or another, even then the inquisitor might be looking to squeeze them into some known category of schismatic or other.

Though not my typical pick, this book read for my Honors class demonstrates the immense hypocrisy of the Catholic Church during the Baroque Period.

Jun 12, Alex rated it it was amazing. The book offers a glimpse into an alternative and generally unheard from gsuanos that is full of so much imagination on the part of the miller that it should put many a fiction writer to shame.

He was tortured and finally gave the name of the lord of the town. Beyond Menocchio, Ginzburg is able to give inklings about the early Renaissance culture ; his claim that Menocchio has used an unspoken “popular tradution” as a cradle for his idea makes me feel skeptical, for he was most probably not from the poorer, popular citizens of Montereale he knew how to read, had travelled and Ginbzurg saw more in Menocchio an example of how the spread of books helped forge one man’s opinion.

The fact that it is so difficult and that our attempts so often end in failure is no accident; this was the intention of cultural elites who worked tirelessly and almost completely successfully to extirpate all memory of this dissent.

El Queso Y Los Gusanos : Carlo Ginzburg :

He came up against the Roman Inquisition multiple times, resulting in several imprisonments and eventually his execution. Historian whose fields of interest range from the Italian Renaissance to early modern European History, with contributions in art history, literary studies, popular cultural beliefs, and the theory of historiography. Ginzburg uses the records gusanow his trial to examine his personal theology and cosmology, and to examine to what extent we can recover a pre-modern “popular culture.

Alas, I found some of Menocchio’s musings to be a little tedious—I wish I could share my fellow readers’ fascination on the subject. There are many reasons why Menocchio may believe what he seems to believe.
