Early modern Catholicism : essays in honour of John W. O'Malley, S.J. by Nelson H Minnich( )

24 editions published between 2000 and 2016 in English and held by 1,749 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The so-called Counter- or Catholic Reformation has traditionally been viewed as a monolith. John O'Malley, a distinguished scholar of the Renaissance and Reformation, has decisively challenged this interpretation, emphasizing the diversity, vitality, and complexity of Catholicism in the early modern era. The essays in Early Modern Catholicism, written in O'Malley's honour, present new research on subjects ranging from popular religion to colonial architecture, and suggest new interpretations of the accepted picture of various societies, institutions, and individuals which together constituted the Catholic Church in the period from the fifteenth through the seventeenth centuries." "The book examines a wide variety of themes through many different methodologies and offers perspectives from a number of disciplines, including social history, law, art history, education, musicology, and philosophy. Unique in both scope and subject, it is a significant contribution to the growing field of interdisciplinary studies of Early Modern Catholicism, and will be especially useful in various courses in history and religion."--Jacket

Jesuit foundations and Medici power, 1532-1621 by Kathleen M Comerford( Book )

12 editions published between 2010 and 2017 in English and French and held by 121 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Jesuit Foundations and Medici Power, 1532-1621, focuses on the cooperation between two new foundations, the last Medici state and the Society of Jesus, spanning nearly a century, concentrating on the Jesuit foundations in Florence, Siena, and Montepulciano. As the Medici built and centralized their power in the Grand Duchy of Tuscany, they sought to control both the civic and religious behavior of their citizens. They found partners in the Jesuits, whose educational program helped establish social order and maintain religious orthodoxy. Via a detailed investigation of both minor and major Italian Jesuit colleges, and of multiple Medici rulers, Kathleen M. Comerford provides insight into church/state cooperation in an age in which both institutions underwent significant changes

The medici and a florentine plutocracy in the quattrocento by Robert Dalton Bryant( )

1 edition published in 2020 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Author's abstract: This study examines how the economic elite of Florence, Italy during the fifteenth century exerted political control over the Republic of Florence. Several powerful families influenced the domestic and foreign policies of Florence. However, one Florentine family among the ruling class was more effective at using their wealth to obtain political power. As this work demonstrates, the Medici family was able to control the republican Florentine government as a de facto plutocracy. Chapter two focuses on how the Medici successfully used civic humanism and artistic endeavors to justify and project their power throughout the Italian world. Focusing on contemporary demographic, literary, and legal sources, including the Tratte of Office Holders, 1282-1532 and the <em>Catasto</em> of 1427 in chapter three, this thesis illustrates how the Medici, in particular Cosimo<em> Pater Patriae </em>(Father of the Fatherland)<em> </em>and his grandson Lorenzo, manipulated the Republic of Florence to maintain their control over the Florentine government. Chapter three details the manipulative practices of Cosimo de' Medici and Lorenzo de' Medici that highlight the Florentine government's lack of republican values. Finally, chapter four utilizes the <em>Catasto</em> of 1427 to illustrate who the plutocratic class was and shows how the Medici used their wealth more effectively. The example given in chapter four is how the Medici used their wealth to influence religious appointments in the Catholic Church

Trent and all that : renaming Catholicism in the early modern era by John W O'Malley( Book )

1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"John O'Malley works out a guide to the intellectual and historical developments behind the concepts of Catholic reform, the Counter Reformation, and, in his felicitous term, Early Modern Catholicism." "Trent and All That makes a case for subsuming the present confusion of terminology under the concept of Early Modern Catholicism. The term indicates clearly what this book demonstrates: that Early Modern Catholicism was an aspect of early modern history, which it strongly influenced and by which it was in itself in large measure determined."--Jacket
