Petrarch's guide to the Holy Land : Itinerary to the Sepulcher of Our Lord Jesus Christ = Itinerarium ad sepulchrum domini nostri Yehsu Christi : facsimile edition of Cremona, Biblioteca statale, Deposito libreria civica, manuscript BB. 1.2.5. by Francesco Petrarca( Book )

18 editions published in 2002 in 3 languages and held by 264 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Composed over three days between March and April of 1358, the Itinerarium and sepulchrum domini nostri Yehsu Christi takes the characteristic Petrarchan form of an epistle to a friend. Delivered to his correspondent in the form of an elegant booklet, the work presents a literary self-portrait that was meant to stand as "the more stable effigy of my soul and intellect" as well as "a description of places." Although the Holy Land is the ostensible destination of the pilgrimage, more than half of this charming guidebook is devoted to Petrarch's leisurely and loving descriptions of Italy's physical and cultural landscape

Le Isole Fortunate : appunti di storia letteraria italiana by T. J Cachey( Book )

13 editions published in 1995 in 3 languages and held by 81 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Il libro di Cachey conduce il lettore nell'immaginario poetico del periodo delle grandi navigazioni e delle scoperte: percorso impervio, che rischia di sconfinare nell'erudizione sterile, e che Cachey rende invece affascinante, con una fitta serie di proposte di lettura di grande creatività. Emerge dal libro padronanza assoluta della materia sia sotto il profilo storico, sia sotto quello più propriamente letterario. E questo terreno "misto" è congeniale a Theodore Cachey, allievo di Fredi Chiappeli alla University of California, Los Angeles, e con il maestro tra gli ideatori del Repertorium Columbianum. Ne risulta un libro suggestivo e convincente, sostenuto da note ricchissime e mai pignole, strumento insostituibile per affrontare sia le problematiche dell'immaginario geografico nella letteratura italiana, sia quelle della storiografia delle scoperte e delle narrazioni di viaggio

True flesh: pilgrimage, measure, and perfecting the human in Dante⁰́₉s 'Commedia' by Corey J Flack( )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Critics of Dante⁰́₉s Commedia have frequently maintained that the 14th-century poem depicts a ⁰́₋pilgrimage⁰́₊ in the sense of a journey to God, undertaken both in imitation of the actual practice of pilgrimage to holy sites such as Jerusalem and Santiago de Compostela, as well as of the Biblical Exodus, a journey from the exile of earthly life to the true patria of Heaven. Yet, since the middle of the 20th century, this label has been taken for granted, without acknowledging a pivotal characteristic that determines both these historical precedents which is mirrored in Dante⁰́₉s text: the human body. This study maintains that the Commedia should be read according to Dante⁰́₉s understanding of the term ⁰́₋peregrinatio,⁰́₊ the Latin word from which our English ⁰́₋pilgrimage⁰́₊ derives. Properly speaking, while the human body was considered the source of man⁰́₉s alienation from God, it is conversely also its source of potential inclusion through the figure of Christ, who, through the Incarnation, partook of both human and divine natures. Peregrinatio manifests this process of salvation through movement in imitation of Christ, allowing for the proper reintegration of humanity in the order of the universe and for the true revelation of man⁰́₉s resemblance to Christ that is revealed in the poem⁰́₉s final vision of God. Chapters 1-3 contextualize Dante⁰́₉s understanding of peregrinatio in both his works and broader medieval thought. Chapter 1 reveals how the entire journey of the Commedia is framed by the experience of Christ and how the reflection of the Incarnation in the character Dante enables the potential for salvation. By analyzing the etymology and history of the term⁰́₄originally denoting exile and travel in Roman culture, but then theologized to humanity⁰́₉s ontological state by the Church Fathers⁰́₄we can see how Dante⁰́₉s understanding of the process was more nuanced than critics typically attest in their use of the labels ⁰́₋pilgrim⁰́₊ or ⁰́₋pilgrimage.⁰́₊ Dante utilizes the polysemic nature of the word to portray the Commedia as the praxis of peregrinatio, a process of recognizing one⁰́₉s resemblance to Christ. Chapter 2 continues by focusing on how the above process manifests as the journey of physical movement presented in the poem. Classical usage of peregrinatio often indicated motion in space, a meaning that was transferred to the historical phenomenon of pilgrimage. Dante considered pilgrimage as travel to a holy place in order to access the sacred, which was done, as the cult of relics indicates, through the body and the sense of touch. Dante⁰́₉s understanding of this action is then contextualized by reading the relationship constructed between the body and sacred space in pilgrimage literature. These accounts reveal that people in the Middle Ages understood space through a sense of personal interaction and physical presence, emerging from primarily walking around and the absence of maps. This, connected with the practice of measuring holy spaces and relics, demonstrates that the body was thought to be necessary in order to access the sacred and reveal one⁰́₉s resemblance to God. Chapter 3 utilizes the understanding of peregrinatio furnished by the first two chapters to look specifically at the Commedia. The Christological dimension of this process informs Dante⁰́₉s journey from the first verses of the Inferno, where Dante repeatedly encounters signs of salvation through Christ much as pilgrims who journeyed to the Holy Land. The presence of these factors reveals that Dante recognized his journey as having to be carried out in imitation of Christ, and that this informs the potential of his text to lead its readers to salvation as well. The peculiarity of this conception emerges in the fact that Dante, through the presence of his human body, permanently alters the landscape of Hell, something that no one before or after has done, with the sole exception of Christ. Chapter 4-6 turn their focus to the end point of this process of peregrinatio experienced in the final vision of God at the end of the Commedia and the identification of man⁰́₉s image in God through the Incarnation. Dante expresses this relationality through a simile of a geometer trying to measure a circle. While it is typically argued that this is merely a reference to the impossible geometric problem of squaring the circle, that reading does not attend to the use of ⁰́₋measure⁰́₊ and its precedents in Dante⁰́₉s other works. Instead, measure was understood through a complex set of dynamics that permeated various aspects of medieval life, from intellectual activity to trade. In this regard, Dante utilizes the term to express how the imitation of Christ central to the process of peregrinatio actually takes place: by establishing an intertwined metaphysical and ethical understanding of humanity. Chapter 4 examines the history of the idea of measure as it would have been known to Dante, from: the Bible, Greek philosophy, Christian theology, courtly ethics, and material culture. While each thinker and tradition expresses different aims, measure is universally used to denote a sense of a larger order to which man wishes to belong. Specifically in the Christian tradition, this manifests through a history of interpretation around Wisdom 11:21⁰́₉s statement of the universe being ordered by God in ⁰́₋measure, number, and weight.⁰́₊ This reveals itself to operate by the same mechanics of peregrinatio, as this triad was seen as a trace of Trinity in all creation and as dictating the ways in which ethical behavior can comport oneself to Christ. Chapter 5 utilizes these precedents to examine Dante⁰́₉s complex use of the term measure in his works outside of the Commedia. Particularly in his growing education after his exile in 1301, Dante became increasingly aware of the intellectual richness behind the concept, which he seeks to ground specifically in Aristotelian thought and scholastic theology, predominantly in the Convivio and the Monarchia. The use of measure in both these texts displays Dante⁰́₉s grasp of its Christological richness, where proper ethical action ⁰́₋measured⁰́₊ by the standard of Christ can induce the ontological change that was the goal of peregrinatio, allowing for participation in the divine order. Chapter 6 returns to the Commedia and the simile of the geometer to contextualize the 20 uses of forms of misura (measure) in the poem according to Dante⁰́₉s previous utilization of the term and the intellectual inheritance discussed in chapter 4. This reading reveals that, contrary to typical scholarship on the word, Dante does not use it as an Italian rendering of the Aristotelian mean⁰́₄the conception of virtue as the middle ground between the extremes of vice⁰́₄but rather views misura as an active process conceived through Christ. Through a series of uses of the verb ⁰́₋to measure,⁰́₊ Dante depicts the culmination of the process of peregrinatio to express the goal of full personhood, body and soul, in the image of Christ, and thereby as a return to the full potential for which humanity was created
