Civic Ritual in Renaissance Venice

Cover
Princeton University Press, 21.07.1986 - 356 Seiten

Venice's reputation for political stability and a strong, balanced republican government holds a prominent place in European political theory. Edward Muir traces the origins and development of this reputation, paying particular attention to the sixteenth century, when civic ritual in Venice reached its peak. He shows how the ritualization of society and politics was an important reason for Venice's stability. Influenced in part by cultural anthropology, he establishes and applies to Venice a new methodology for the historical study of civic ritual.

Excellent, influential social history of La Serenissima in its salad days. Unfortunately it's a cheaply produced edition that Princeton ought to be ashamed of. The illustrations look like four-cent photocopies. Vollständige Rezension lesen

Seite 11 - Sun-girt City ! thou hast been Ocean's child, and then his queen; Now is come a darker day, And thou soon must be his prey, If the power that raised thee here Hallow so thy watery bier.
Seite 11 - In order to make up our minds we must know how we feel about things; and to know how we feel about things we need the public images of sentiment that only ritual, myth, and art can provide.
