Los Borgia : luces y sombras by Guy Le Thiec( )

1 edition published in 2012 in Spanish and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Crimen, sexo y poder: he aquí lo que inmediatamente evoca el nombre de Borgia. De esa familia valenciana que dio dos papas y reinó sobre la Romadel siglo XV, la historia ha retenido sobre todo la leyenda escabrosa: veneno, fratricidio, incesto y estupro bajo los oropeles del Vaticano, en los cuales tres personajes, el papa Alejandro VI y sus dos hijos, César y Lucrecia, parecían querer rivalizar. Lo esencial que sabemos de los Borgia, sin embargo, procede de las calumnias propagadas por los enemigos personales del Papa y los adversarios del papado. Guy Le Thiec ha realizado esta investigación para alejarse de la leyenda y enmarcar todos los avatares de la saga de los Borgia en la compleja realidad de los intereses políticos y religiosos de la convulsa época en la que vivieron, ofreciéndonos un texto riguroso y apasionante que nos invita a contemplar la historia desde un lugar privilegiado. El relato del ascenso romano y del posterior crepúsculo de la familia Borgia nos plantea una meditación sobre el deseo y el poder en los albores de la modernidad. Con un estilo enérgico y brillante, el autor pone en escena este fabuloso drama familiar que se representó en un escenario inquietante y prestigioso:la Romadel Renacimiento yla Italiade los enfrentamientos entre potencias rivales

Four documents on paper from three members of the Borgia family in Italy, all of whom served as cardinals, ranging from 1503 to 1770.
