Descrizione libro Wiley-Blackwell, 1997. Condizione libro: New. Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: "The ''Papa terribile'' - notorious, Giucciardini wrote, for ''his very difficult nature'', and ''for the magnificence with which he always outshone all others'' - is at last the subject of a serious study in English, thanks to Christine Shaw''s Julius II: The Warrior Pope (Oxford: Blackwell; pp. 360. #35). Guiliano della Rovere (cardinal, 1471-1503; pope, 1503-13) was for over forty years a dominant figure, and it must have taken a touch of his own intrepidity, much admired by Machiavelli, to have undertaken this biography. Shaw has done it mainly by means of chronological political narrative; she offers much new information derived from diplomatic correspondence and many revisions and reassessments. On the whole, she presents her hero as a rather greyer figure than the dissolute, hyper-aggressive egomaniac portrayed satirically by Erasmus and other contemporaries. In her view, Giuliano''s overriding concern was for his and his uncle Pope Sixtus IV''s upstart Ligurian family, in particular the career as a secular prince of his brother Giovanni della Rovere, Prefect of Rome, whose son Francesco Maria became by good fortune Duke of Urbino. The discussion of Giuliano''s political intrigues and movements as a cardinal is probably the most original part of the book, covering the period with which the author is most familiar; she demonstrates that much of his energy was spent opposing his secular cousin, Girolamo Riario, who often outwitted him (and Shaw here distances herself from historians who have justified nepotism as a method of making papal government work, by pointing out that relatives did not necessarily co-operate). At all events, dynastic interest dictated the support received by rebellious Neapolitan barons and ambitious French kings from Giuliano, whom Shaw generally calls ''Vincula'', a contemporary nick-name from his title church in Rome, which may confuse modern readers. Among other interesting letters cited are those from the Sforza ambassador at Turin in 1496, which reveal Giuliano''s costly attempts to arrange a new French invasion which would have helped Giovanni''s interests and also liberated their native Liguria from Milanese control. Later, the claims of the papal lordship combined with della Rovere interest to shape Julius''s priorities or enmities, first anti-Venetian, then anti-French and anti-''barbarian''. But Giuliano-Julius never intended any grandiose parallel between himself and Julius Caesar, Shaw argues; no such idea was behind his choice of name as pope, and (apart possibly from the two medals struck after the submissions of Bologna in 1506) such Caesaro-papism was just the stock-in-trade of artists and humanists; it did not emanate from the Pope himself. Indeed, despite the book''s subtitle, and Shaw''s suggestion (unproven) that Julius would have liked to be a military man by profession rather than a priest in the Franciscan Order, he does not even emerge as a notable warrior: unsuccessful as a military legate in the 1470s, he never appointed a really first-rate commander, and, paradoxically he owed most of his victories to French armies or finally, in 1512, Spaniards and Swiss. It is a pity that the opportunity is missed to explore ''the very difficult nature'' and the enigmatic intellect of Julius. Shaw once describes him as ''a figure of fun'' (p. 50) and in conclusion, lamely, as ''the type of the plain-spoken, big-hearted man of action''. She acknowledges that he drank a lot, and that he was sexually active in his younger years (little seems to be known, unfortunately, about his daughter), but is dismissive about his supposed homosexuality: Alidosi was a favourite principally because he knew how to manage and humour his patron. If there is not much presence in the book of Julius''s physicality, his foul-mouthedness and violence, there is little investigation in depth, either, of his reading and his urge to commissi.
