'Purgatorio' 2019: A Response To The Work Of Marco Martinelli And Ermanna Montanari, Heather Webb Dec 2020

'Purgatorio' 2019: A Response To The Work Of Marco Martinelli And Ermanna Montanari, Heather Webb

Bibliotheca Dantesca: Journal of Dante Studies

This brief report discusses Marco Martinelli and Ermanna Montanari’s Purgatorio 2019 at Ravenna’s Teatro delle Albe. The report sets out three aspects of the political remediation of Dante’s Purgatorio that the Teatro delle Albe has offered: first, a plurilingual, pluricultural vision of Italy; second, an emphasis on denouncing domestic violence; and third, an environmentalist impulse that reads the tropes of care and cultivation in Dante’s canticle in the light of the notable engagement of today’s youth to protest our current state of environment crisis.

The Cessation Of Music In The 'Paradiso', William Mahrt Dec 2020

The Cessation Of Music In The 'Paradiso', William Mahrt

Bibliotheca Dantesca: Journal of Dante Studies

This article explores Dante’s narrative use of music in the Paradiso as it leads to his ultimate vision of God. Unlike the Inferno and Purgatorio, the Paradiso seems to be suffused with continuous music, one that is inherent in the unending motions of the heavens. In the Paradiso, however, there is also much mention of the absence of sound. There are at least fifteen instances that describe a person or a group suddenly falling into silence, either as a natural conclusion of a speech, or unexpectedly as a momentary interruption of music. This article contends that the purpose of ...


"Centro Del Cammin:" Centers And Centrality In The 'Commedia', J.C. Wiles Dec 2020

"Centro Del Cammin:" Centers And Centrality In The 'Commedia', J.C. Wiles

Bibliotheca Dantesca: Journal of Dante Studies

The thematization of centrality in Dante’s Commedia is evident even in its opening lines. Despite the evident richness of the theme throughout the poem, however, criticism has overwhelmingly preferred to discuss centrality in the Commedia in terms of numbers. This has led to a general critical concern less with centrality than with what one might call “middleness,” which has precluded any serious discussion of the two distinct concepts. In the Commedia, the state of middleness carries with it the double meaning of mezzo as both a middle and a tangible medium through which action takes place, while centro carries ...


Unnoticed Fragments Of Dante’S 'Monarchia' With The Commentary Attributed To Cola Di Rienzo, Matthew Holford Dec 2020

Unnoticed Fragments Of Dante’S 'Monarchia' With The Commentary Attributed To Cola Di Rienzo, Matthew Holford

Bibliotheca Dantesca: Journal of Dante Studies

This note draws attention to and briefly describes fragments in the Bodleian Library, Oxford, which preserve a previously unknown copy of Dante’s Monarchia with the commentary on that text attributed to Cola di Rienzo. The fragments survive in fifteenth-century bindings from Erfurt but seem to have been written in Central Europe around the middle of the fourteenth century by a combination of Central European and Italian scribes. In their layout, decoration, text, corrections and annotations the fragments provide significant new evidence for the circulation both of the Monarchia and of the commentary. They are also important for the possibility ...


Why Is Pampinea 28? Pythagoras Meets Aquinas In The 'Decameron', Victoria Kirkham Dec 2020

Why Is Pampinea 28? Pythagoras Meets Aquinas In The 'Decameron', Victoria Kirkham

Bibliotheca Dantesca: Journal of Dante Studies

Boccaccio tells us little about the Decameron frame narrators except their pseudonyms and ages. Eldest of the seven ladies, Pampinea is in her twenty-eighth year, while the youngest is 18. The three men, ready to serve female reliance on male guidance, are young, but none is under 25. Commentators, caught up by riddles of nomenclature, have all but ignored the numerals. Spelled out so carefully, 28th-18 and 25 tease our curiosity. Why should the Author express his ladies’ ages as a ten-year span, while for the gentlemen a single anchoring number suffices? If the seven women allude to the Virtues ...


Dante's Political Life, Guy P. Raffa Dec 2020

Dante's Political Life, Guy P. Raffa

Bibliotheca Dantesca: Journal of Dante Studies

The approach of the seven-hundredth anniversary of Dante's death is a propitious time to recall the events that drove him from his native Florence and marked his life in various Italian cities before he found his final refuge in Ravenna, where he died and was buried in 1321. Drawing on early chronicles and biographies, modern historical research and biographical criticism, and the poet's own writings, I construct this narrative of “Dante's Political Life” for the milestone commemoration of his death. The poet’s politically-motivated exile, this biographical essay shows, was destined to become one of the world ...
