Early Modern Antitrinitarianism and Italian Culture: Interdisciplinary Perspectives

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 of various 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, in the later phases of the early modern period.
