The Jews, instructions for use : four eighteenth-century projects for the emanicipation of European Jews by Paolo Bernardini( )

15 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 1,438 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Scrutinizes four projects meant to harmonize the Jews with their states during the Enlightenment era: one by the British freethinker John Toland in 1714, and the others in the 1780s by the Prussian official Christian Wilhelm von Dohm; the political economist in Habsburg Mantua, Count Giovanni Battista Gherardo D'Arco; and the Abb̌ Henri Gřgoire in France. These projects were never carried out, but they influenced the policies of subsequent rulers. Argues that Toland's, Dohm's, and Gřgoire's projects were allegedly philosemitic, but in fact "philo-state". The aim of their authors was to accommodate the states in their dealings with the Jews: to make Jews more useful to the state, to limit their "negative influence", and to strengthen state power over the Jewish minority. They saw the Jews as a degenerate people, but believed in the possibility of their (forced) regeneration - through expanding of their rights in Toland's and Dohm's versions, through emancipation and mixed marriages in Gřgoire's version, and through state control over Jewish economic activities according to D'Arco. The emancipation of which the Enlightenment thinkers wrote was nothing but a kind of secular conversion. Notes that these projects paved the way for racial antisemitism of the 19th century
Voglio morire! : suicide in Italian literature, culture, and society 1789-1919 by Anita Virga( )

9 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 1,148 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The theme of suicide was of paramount importance in Italy in the long nineteenth century, from the French revolution to the outbreak of World War I.A number of writers, intellectuals, politicians, and artists wrote about suicide, and a very high number of people killed themselves, for several reasons. There were suicides for love and for homeland, suicides for despair, and suicides for ennui. In Italy, once a very traditional, Catholic country, where suicide was very uncommon and rarely trea
Episodes in early modern and modern Christian-Jewish relations : diasporas, dogmas, differences by Paolo Bernardini( )

8 editions published in 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,133 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The history of the Christian-Jewish relations is full of curious, intense, and occasionally tragic episodes. In the dialectical development of the Western monotheistic religions, Judaism plays the role of the "thesis", of the origins and background for the rise of Christianity and Islam. With the rise of Christianity, Judaism was progressively marginalized, since it was denied the same essence and validity of Christianity, which grew immensely in terms of spiritual and secular power. Christian scholars since the Middle Ages looked at Judaism as at the "broken staff" in the evolutionist line of
Homosexuality in Italian literature, society, and culture, 1789-1919 by Lorenzo Benadusi( )

7 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 991 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Homosexuality, bisexuality, transvestitism, and trans-genders represented new ideas, customs, and mentalities which shattered nineteenth-century Italy. At this time, Italy was a state in the making, with a growing population, a fading aristocracy, and new urban classes entering the scene. While still an extremely Catholic country, atheism and secularization slowly undermined the old, traditional morality, with literature and poetry endorsing innovative fashions coming from abroad. Laxity mixed with perversion, while new forms of sexuality mirrored the immense changes taking place in a society that, since time immemorial, was dominated by the Church and by a rigid class system. This was a revolution, parallel to the political movements that brought about the Unification of Italy in 1861, and was tormented, intense, and occasionally tragic. This collection of essays offers a rather comprehensive overview of this phenomenon. Personalities and places, ideas and novels, poetry and tragedy, law and customs, are the subject of ten essays, written by leading international experts in Italian history, the history of sexuality, literature and poetry. The Italian nineteenth century is a time of a number of rapid changes, visible and invisible revolutions, often given less attention than the unification process. This book makes a substantial contribution to Italian studies and modern European history
The Jews and the expansion of Europe to the west, 1450 to 1800 by Norman Fiering( )

17 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and German and held by 757 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Jews and Judaism played a significant role in the history of the expansion of Europe to the west as well as in the history of the economic, social, and religious development of the New World. They played an important role in the discovery, colonization, and eventually exploitation of the resources of the New World. Alone among the European peoples who came to the Americas in the colonial period, Jews were dispersed throughout the hemisphere; indeed, they were the only cohesive European ethnic or religious group that lived under both Catholic and Protestant regimes, which makes their study particularly fruitful from a comparative perspective. As distinguished from other religious or ethnic minorities, the Jewish struggle was not only against an overpowering and fierce nature but also against the political regimes that ruled over the various colonies of the Americas and often looked unfavorably upon the establishment and tleration of Jewish communities in their own territory. Jews managed to survive and occasionally to flourish against all odds, and their history in the Americas is one of the more fascinating chapters in the early modern history of European expansion
The Etruscans outside Etruria by Giovannangelo Camporeale( Book )

9 editions published between 2001 and 2004 in English and held by 338 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The influence of the Eastern and Greek worlds on Etruscan culture has been a subject of frequent study by archaeologists. The contribution that the Etruscan civilization made to other cultures has by contrast, received less attention. This volume seeks to redress this imbalance by tracing the Etruscans impact beyond Etruria. More specifically, it focuses on the panorama of their commerce and the Etruscan ideological and cultural initiatives that radiated from their native territory into other regions. Etruscan civilization spread across a surprisingly vast area, from ancient Italy out into the Mediterranean basin and continental Europe."--Jacket
La questione ebraica nel tardo illuminismo tedesco : studi intorno allo "Über die bürgerliche Verbesserung der Juden" di C.W. Dohm (1781) by Paolo Bernardini( Book )

9 editions published in 1992 in Italian and held by 57 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Discusses the social and juridical status of the Jews in Germany and the general debate triggered by the publication of C.W. Dohm's book. States that Dohm was an exponent of German philohebraic illuminist elites who advocated the right of the Jews to full emancipation. The public debate on emancipation was impregnated with a wide series of anti-Jewish contemporary stereotypes, present in the arguments of anti-emancipationists such as M. Hissmann and F.T. Hartmann as well as in Dohm's refutation of their arguments, published in 1783
