Conference: Early Modern Antitrinitarianism and Italian Culture

Conference: Early Modern Antitrinitarianism and Italian Culture / Antitrinitarismo della prima età moderna e cultura italiana

30 March 2020, German Historical Institute in Rome

The theme of the workshop is the influence of Italian culture on the Antitrinitarian movements that spread through Europe in a more or less clandestine fashion during the Early Modern period. One of the objectives is to go back to the period preceding the activity of the Sozzini and of Servet. We will consider the influences on later Antitrinitarianism of humanist philology, prophetism and other trends in the Italian thought of the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries that made a crucial contribution to shaping the ideas of the Antitrinitarians about Biblical exegesis, spirituality, baptism and the Trinity. We will also discuss the mutual exchanges between different groups, in touch with one another despite the ongoing persecutions by both Catholics and Protestants. 

Participants: Riccarda Suitner (GHI Rome), Emese Balint (Columbia University, New York), Anne Overell (Durham University), Alexander Koller (GHI Rome), Sven Grosse (Universität Basel), Stefano Brogi (Università di Siena), Giorgio Caravale (Università di Roma Tre), Pasquale Terracciano (Firenze, Istituto Nazionale di Studi sul Rinascimento), Ann Thomson (European University Institute), Girolamo Imbruglia (Università L’Orientale, Napoli).
