Learning outcomes

Acquisition of a good command of the research tools related to early modern history, so that the student is able to critically use the sources and scientific literature related to one or more themes chosen as central to the course. The teaching activity will therefore aim to develop the individual research skills of the student as much as possible.

Program

The first part of the course aims to provide students with the main coordinates for the in-depth study of the fundamental themes of early modern society and culture. The second part will be focused on '"Popular" religion in Early Modern Italy: devotions, dissents, rituals". The themes of "lived religion", of materiality and of the daily articulations of religiosity are crucial elements for understanding the way of living the religion of the great majority of people in Early modern Europe. Alongside ecclesiological, theological and dogmatic questions, therefore, attention must be turned to the interweaving of these and forms of religiosity linked to traditions and rituals that are perhaps less aware, but decisive. During the course attention will therefore be paid to the more everyday aspects of religious practice, both in urban and rural contexts, with particular reference to the Early modern Italian States. Lessons will be given, among other things, on ecclesiastical organization, rituality, forms of control, inquisitorial activity, religious dissent, preaching, magical beliefs and witchcraft, the cult of the dead, the materiality of devotions. This section will be divided into a first part of presentation of general problems and a second part dedicated to the in-depth seminar of some issues through the direct analysis of sources. This last aspect is the fundamental element of the course, which will have a profoundly seminar structure. All students are therefore invited to participate actively and should be willing to work during the course on the texts provided. They should also be willing to discuss their reading impressions freely with the teacher and other students. Active participation will be a key element of assessment for learners and will involve ongoing work on individual readings and classroom discussions. The frequency is therefore only recommended if the participation will be active. In other words: the lessons will be discussed openly and freely (because this is a seminar) about what you will read, individually or in a group, during the course and all students should feel comfortable in exposing their points of view, obviously within the limits of education and mutual respect. Both attending and not attending students, will have to study the book M. Bellabarba e V. Lavenia (a cura di), Introduzione alla storia moderna, il Mulino, Bologna, 2018. Knowledge of the text will be ascertained by means of a written test with open questions. As far as the monographic part is concerned, the students attending the course will write a paper on one or some of the documents analysed during the course. The paper must be delivered by e-mail at least a few days before the oral examination, in which it will be discussed Those who do not attend must prepare two texts of their choice: - C. Franceschini, Storia del limbo, Feltrinelli, Milano, 2017 - L. Addante, Tommaso Campanella. Il filosofo immaginato, interpretato, falsato, Laterza, Bari, 2018 - A. Arcangeli, L'altro che danza.

Double degree

The University of Verona, through a network of agreements with foreign universities, offers international courses that enable students to gain a Double/Joint degree at the time of graduation. Indeed, students enrolled in a Double/Joint degree programme will be able to obtain both the degree of the University of Verona and the degree issued by the Partner University abroad - where they are expected to attend part of the programme -, in the time it normally takes to gain a common Master’s degree. The institutions concerned shall ensure that both degrees are recognised in the two countries.

Places on these programmes are limited, and admissions and any applicable grants are subject to applicants being selected in a specific Call for applications.

The latest Call for applications for Double/Joint Degrees at the University of Verona is available now!
