Dante's 'Lonza': A Dissection Of The Wild Cat In Canto I, Patricia Vázquez Dec 2022

Dante's 'Lonza': A Dissection Of The Wild Cat In Canto I, Patricia Vázquez

Bibliotheca Dantesca: Journal of Dante Studies

Even though every English translation of the Inferno describes the wild cat that impedes Dante’s way up the mountain of Salvation in Canto I as a leopard, there is no direct correlation between the leopard we know and the Italian term Dante uses, 'una lonza.' A glance at Singleton's notes on the "lonza" reveals how the term’s ambiguity has resulted in little agreement about the cat’s gender, whether it was a live, breathing animal or merely mythical. This paper examines a variety of sources from art history to zoology to argue that the wild cat Dante was trying to conjure …


Scemare, Or Approaching “Virgillessness”, Jonny Wiles Dec 2022

Scemare, Or Approaching “Virgillessness”, Jonny Wiles

Bibliotheca Dantesca: Journal of Dante Studies

Any examination of the phenomenon of absence in the Commedia must account for a crucial linguistic issue: though they are amply attested in the Commedia’s sources, the words assenza, assente, and their derivatives are themselves conspicuously absent from the poem’s lexicon. Absence experiences are expressed in the poem partly through imagery and circumlocution, but also through a constellation of individual words which invoke experiences of absence without naming absence as such. One particularly suggestive word operating within this language of omission is the verb scemare. With a focus on Purgatorio 30, in this paper, I discuss the importance …

Discussing The 'Divine Comedy' With Dante: On Crowdsourcing And Transcultural Resonance, Elizabeth Coggeshall Dec 2022

Discussing The 'Divine Comedy' With Dante: On Crowdsourcing And Transcultural Resonance, Elizabeth Coggeshall

Bibliotheca Dantesca: Journal of Dante Studies

Departing from the enigmatic 2006 Chinese-oil-painting-turned-digital-curio Discussing the Divine Comedy with Dante, this essay first defines the conceptual framework behind Dante Today, a crowdsourced but curated digital archive that catalogs references to Dante and his works across contemporary global cultures. Then it explains our editorial decision to employ crowdsourcing as the principal mechanism behind collection development. This choice has advantages and pitfalls. On the one hand, crowdsourcing enables the participation of large and diverse publics in collection development, engaging the “crowd” in scholarly practice. On the other hand, outsourcing collection development to the “crowd” threatens to replicate the …


Exploring Dante’S Sources Online: Interactive Reading, Visualizations, And The Study Of Dantean Intertextuality In The Digital Age, Julie Van Peteghem Dec 2022

Exploring Dante’S Sources Online: Interactive Reading, Visualizations, And The Study Of Dantean Intertextuality In The Digital Age, Julie Van Peteghem

Bibliotheca Dantesca: Journal of Dante Studies

Dante’s Commedia is a highly allusive text, and readers throughout time have noted the many parallels between Dante’s verses and those of others. Now that the text of the Commedia and various scholarly and artistic interpretations of the poem (commentaries, translations, illuminated manuscripts) have become accessible online, also the concordance, the lists of parallel passages in Dante’s poem and other works, has become a digital resource. In this essay I explore the study of Dante’s sources in a digital environment mainly through the Intertextual Dante project and its Dante-Ovid edition, published on Digital Dante. Intertextual Dante visualizes moments of …


'Status Quaestionis' Of Dantean Digital Resources. Some Corrective Theoretical Perspectives And A Case Study (Database Allegorico Dantesco), Matteo Maselli Dec 2022

'Status Quaestionis' Of Dantean Digital Resources. Some Corrective Theoretical Perspectives And A Case Study (Database Allegorico Dantesco), Matteo Maselli

Bibliotheca Dantesca: Journal of Dante Studies

This paper reflects on the current configuration of Dantean digital resources and proposes some possible perspectives to implement their functionality (disambiguation, RDF and Semantic Web, Distant & Close Reading, attention to the processes of digitization of texts). The second part of the essay explains the structure and presents the basic functionality of the Database Allegorico Dantesco (DAD) a new repository on Dantean allegory.


Foul Tales, Public Knowledge: Bringing Dante's 'Divine Comedy' To Wikipedia, Laura Ingallinella Dec 2022

Foul Tales, Public Knowledge: Bringing Dante's 'Divine Comedy' To Wikipedia, Laura Ingallinella

Bibliotheca Dantesca: Journal of Dante Studies

This contribution discusses WikiDante, a set of best practices for the implementation of content related to the Divine Comedy on Wikipedia, chiefly designed for (yet not limited to) the undergraduate classroom. Developed as a digital project involving undergraduate students in partnership with Wiki Education, WikiDante consisted of two iterations, the first of which created or revised entries on the women from Dante’s recent history mentioned in the poem. For two decades, scholars have treated Wikipedia as the proverbial elephant in the room—shunned, ignored, or shamefully used only in lack of more anointed tools. This essay explores the benefits of using …


The Global Popularity Of Dante's 'Divina Commedia': Translations, Libraries, Wikipedia, Jacob Blakesley Dec 2022

The Global Popularity Of Dante's 'Divina Commedia': Translations, Libraries, Wikipedia, Jacob Blakesley

Bibliotheca Dantesca: Journal of Dante Studies

Studies of the translation and reception history of Dante’s Divina Commedia have rarely included the use of either distant reading (aka large-scale literary analysis) or Digital Humanities, much less both. However, using both these methods allows innovative research questions to be pursued and answered with regard to Dante’s fortuna, as I have shown in four previous articles regarding Dante and other writers. This contribution draws on three new datasets that I constructed myself in order to study canons of world literature, using Dante’s Divine Comedy as a case study: a comprehensive catalogue of all the worldwide complete translations of …

The Human Moment Of The Soul, Lorenzo Bartolucci Dec 2022

The Human Moment Of The Soul, Lorenzo Bartolucci

Bibliotheca Dantesca: Journal of Dante Studies

This article explores the idea of the soul through the framework of two of the most elusive terms in Dante’s Commedia, “umano” and “persona.” It begins with an analysis of the soul’s formation, outlined in Purgatorio 25, by way of the conjunction of corporeal matter and a supernal “spirito novo,” which after death seems to ascend beyond the realm of human existence. This account is then contrasted with the etymological and theological affordances of the concept of personhood, which frames the body as the form—the “mask” of flesh and bones—that continues to individuate the soul after death, immortalizing rather …


The Poetics Of 'Gentilezza' In The 'Fiore' And The Emergence Of Dante's Political Vision Before The Exile, Robert J. Clines Dec 2022

The Poetics Of 'Gentilezza' In The 'Fiore' And The Emergence Of Dante's Political Vision Before The Exile, Robert J. Clines

Bibliotheca Dantesca: Journal of Dante Studies

This essay investigates the political and literary culture of late Duecento Florence as well as the entangled rather than mutually exclusive nature of Dante’s pre- and post-exile political and literary visions. I read Dante’s political vision against the Fiore, a Tuscan form of the medieval French epic Roman de la Rose that appeared in Italy before 1290. Pervasive in Dante’s politics, poetics, and the cultural milieux in which the Fiore appeared are the rejection of French/Provençal cultural dominance, Franco-Angevin political influence in Italy, and mendicants as morally bankrupt threats to civil society. In turn, this essay argues that the …
