9780300119374: The Ceremonial City: History, Memory and Myth in Renaissance Venice

This wide-ranging study vividly presents the major events that took place in Venice in the 1570s, culminating in a deadly outbreak of the plague that claimed one-quarter of the Venetian population. Analyzing reactions to this dramatic decade, Iain Fenlon throws fresh light on the historical machine that produced the distinct civic and cultural ethos of the city and uncovers new aspects of its urban topography, ceremony, and cultural life.

At the heart of the book is a detailed account of four historical events: the formation of the Holy League, a coalition that brought the Republic into conflict with the Ottoman Empire; the victory of that League against the Turkish fleet at the battle of Lepanto; the ceremonial welcoming of Henry III of France to the city in 1574; and the devastating plague of 1575–77. The author considers how these events, above all the victory at Lepanto, were reconfigured in the realms of memory and myth, and he describes in detail a religious matrix that provides the key to the civic ethos of the city in this era.

Descrizione libro Condizione libro: New. This profusely illustrated study vividly presents the major events that took place in Venice in the 1570s, culminating in a deadly outbreak of the plague. Through an astute analysis of this dramatic decade, fresh light is thrown on the distinct civic and cultural ethos of the city. At the heart of the book are four major events: the formation of the Holy League, which brought the Republic into conflict with the Ottoman Empire; its victory against the Turkish fleet at the battle of Lepanto; the ceremonial welcome of France's Henry III to the city in 1574; and the devastating plague of 1575-77 that killed a quarter of the population. The author considers how these major events, and above all the victory at Lepanto, were metabolised in Venetian history and reconfigured in the realms of memory and myth to create Venice as the City of God.Sumptuously illustrated, the book is nevertheless a serious work of scholarship.
