Liturgy, Sanctity and History in Tridentine Italy: Pietro Maria Campi and the Preservation of the Particularby Simon Ditchfield
Pub. Date: 12/28/2014
Publisher: Cambridge University Press
This book offers a fresh, original and interdisciplinary interpretation of what the catholic Reformation meant at local diocesan level in the face of attempts by Rome to regularise worship c. 1550-1700. In the process of protecting the spiritual integrity of the patria, representatives of Italian local history such as Pietro Maria Campi of Piacenza (1569-1649) - who provides the focus of this wide-ranging study - significantly broadened the boundaries of historical study and helped to lay the foundations of Italian national history writing.
