Nuovi documenti sul conflitto dell'Interdetto (1606-1607)
Un inedito dialogo satirico in venezianoPDF
A XVII Century manuscript containing Italian poems is preserved in the Trinity College Library, in Cambridge. Many of the texts refer to the events occurred between the Republic of Venice and the Church of Rome during the so-called Interdict (1606-7). The aim of the article is to focus on an anonymous satirical dialogue in venetian dialect containing the account - from a venetian perspective - of some improper acts committed by the Jesuits before their banishment. A great deal of interest about this dialogue can be found in the historical and cultural context of production, the literary genre and the obscene lexicon.
