Abstract

Montaigne non racconta solo la scoperta dei vizi e delle virtù degli “italiani” ma, ancor più, segna la nascita di una nuova antropologia: «Gli uomini sono diversi e tuttavia ogni uomo porta in sé i segni e i caratteri dell’umana condizione». È il confronto con gli “altri” che aiuta a liberarsi di ogni schema e a studiare il reale nella sua tangibile evidenza. Inedito per il suo tempo, il suo sguardo investiga l’umanità in tutte le sue contraddizioni con uno stile che non giudica ma riferisce...

Abstract

On parle de Saint-Évremond surtout pour rappeler qu’il fait partie des grands exilés de l’histoire mais son œuvre est rarement étudiée en tant que telle. Elle n’a notamment jamais fait l’objet d’une rencontre spécifique. Le colloque de Cerisy, dont nous présentons les Actes, entendait donc réparer un oubli. Des écrits de celui qui redoutait par-dessus tout de passer pour un « auteur » il convient en effet de souligner tout à la fois l’abondance – qui s’explique en partie par sa longévité – et...

Abstract

On November 11 and 12, 2011, a symposium held at the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill honored John M. Headley, Emeritus Professor of History. The organizers, Professor MelissaBullard—Headley’s colleague in the department of history at that university—along with ProfessorsPaul Grendler (University of Toronto) and James Weiss (Boston College), as well as Nancy GraySchoonmaker, coordinator of the Program in Medieval and Early Modern Studies—assembled presenters, respondents, and dozens of other participants from Western Europe and North America to celebrate the career of their prolific, versatile, and influential colleague whose publications challenged and often changed the ways scholars think about Martin Luther, Thomas More, the Habsburg empire,early modern Catholicism, globalization, and multiculturalism.This special issue contains the major papers delivered at the symposium, revised to take account of colleagues’ suggestions at the conference and thereafter. John O’Malley studies the censorship ofsacred art with special reference to Michelangelo’s famed “Last Judgment” and the Council of Trent.John Martin sifts Montaigne’s skepticism about contemporaneous strategies for self-disclosure andself-discipline. Stressing the significance of grammar, Constantin Fasolt helps us recapture theRenaissance’s and the early modern religious reformations’ disagreements with antiquity. RonaldWitt’s reappraisal of humanist historiography probes Petrarch’s perspectives on ancient Rome. JohnMcManamon includes tales of theft and market manipulation in his study of the early moderncollection and circulation of books and manuscripts, the commodification of study. To “nuance” John Headley’s conclusions about “the Europeanization of the world,” Jerry Bentley repossesses the influence of other than European societies on several European theorists of human rights. Kate Lowe’s remarks on the reconstruction of race in the Renaissance explores the effects of a critical mistranslation on what being black was taken to mean by Europeans. David Gilmartin introduces readers to the shape of democracy in nineteenth- and twentieth-century India, as well as to the understandings of popular sovereignty that affected elections, suggesting strides that scholars might take “toward a worldwide history of voting”.The remarkable range of these contributions comes close to reflecting the range of ProfessorHeadley’s interests and achievements, which James M. Weiss maps in his tribute, identifying“unifying themes” in Headley’s work.
