REVIEW Il formaggio e i vermi: Il cosmo di un mugnaio del '500
These faults This was done for reasons both moral the genuine desire for spiritual improvement and political the destruction of Protestantism and there is often much overlap between these categories The renewed vigor and conseuent cruelty of the Church during the Counter Reformation meant that barring overly iteral counter factuals ie what if Menocchio hadn t run into that tattletale flutist in 1598 Menocchio s death at the stake was for all intents inevitable The immovable object that was the early modern church met the unstoppable force of Menocchio s endless stream of words earthy evocative by turns strident and simpering and always painfully human even across the chasm of centuries Few of us have the courage or uixotic folly to stare up at an inuisitor asking us to explain ourselves and respond I thought you d never ask For this the miller deserves not just our scholarly attention but our respect and our The Viscount The Virgin (Silhouette Romance, love This is an insightful book for all of us who assume European peasants were illiterate uneducated non thinking folk Our hero the miller Menocchio could read and write owned a few books borrowed a few had read the Decameron and dipped into the Koran and combined the ideas he got from books with the oral tradition of 16th century rural Friuli to form his own slightly odd very creative para Catholic religious notions His discussions of these notions with others brought him to the attention of theocal inuisition which uestioned him and decided he wasn t just a heretic but a badass heresiarch He was influencing others and needed to be imprisoned and forever wear a penitential garment After a few years he was released from prison but he couldn t stop talking and ultimately the cardinal and pope put their red slippers down and insisted he be burned at the stake pronto The reason this book gets assigned in history courses is because of its historiographic interest the overlap between social history and the history of ideas This is a microhistory of a sixteenth century Italian miller whose heretical beliefs brought him to the attention of the Inuisition Ginzburg uses the records of his trial to examine his personal theology and cosmology and to examine to what extent we can recover a pre modern popular culture I thought it was a sophisticated attempt at a microhistory than The Return of Martin Guerre Ginzburg approaches his sources with subtlety and with awareness of the dangers of pre conceived notions I particularly appreciated how Ginzburg s critical awareness of the sources contrasted with Menocchio s own sometimes wilful misreadings of the texts he came into contact with That said I m not sure why Ginzburg is so insistent that the peasant culture in which Menocchio The Debutantes Daring Proposal (Regency Bachelors lived had strong nonpre Christian elements and why the unorthodox elements of Menocchio s thought were necessarily products of such cultural elements rather than of independent thought in as much as such a thing is possible of course or other influences I m still not sure about his conclusions in as much as they are predicated on the suitability of Menocchio a single and rather eccentric man as a means of investigating Friuli peasantry as a whole I m undecided but Il be thinking about this one for a while The Cheese and the Worms is a ground breaking expos into the field of microhistory and remains a foundational work for historians today Ginzberg used the story of Menocchio a sixteenth century miller who was twice prosecuted and ultimately condemned by the inuisition for holding and preaching egregiously heretical beliefs As a miller and a The Couple in the Dream Suite (Chatsfield Novella, literate man Menocchio had a greater exposure to people and ideas than the average peasant farmer and apparently also a keen intellect which he used to ponder the world and the Catholic church s teachings Ginzberg uses his story to attempt to reveal what ideas were floating around in the general peasant population concerning the reformation and Catholic and protestant doctrine The tale Ginzberg weav This book is so hyped in academic circles that it was perhaps setting itself up as a disappointment before I even cracked it open I m sure for the right type of history major that is one that s interested in actual events in history rather than their theoretical importance this is a revelation For me it was boring than I care to admit I couldn t care about the miller Menocchio any than I care about any other random individual on the street Sure he was uncommonlyiterate and yes it was somewhat interesting to see how his reading manifested itself into his belief system thus justifying fears that when peasants get a hold of books they are going to come to their own conclusions regarding their contents rather than those the clergy so dogmatically thrust upon them However Ginzburg is careful to not blame books entirely for Menocchio s heresy He explains though it sometimes seems ike he s doing ittle than speculating how traditions of oral culture combined with the burgeoning iterary culture to produce Menocchio s beliefs In any case I wanted theory and ess story Especially since this book is continually praised as an example of how you can tell an important tale without than a close analysis of a single person s ife thus triumphs the ualitative researcher Ginzburg talks a bit about this in the preface and has some interesting and reasoned insights he never claims Menocchio s story is representative merely that it represents something we haven t heard before I m certain this is true I only wish the new story were compelling Ginzburg s classic microhistory The Cheese and the Worms begins with a penetrating theoretical essay that sets out at ength the necessity of carrying out historiography with Os el autor explora el enfrentamiento de Football Dynamo la cultura popular cona cultura oficial y sus consecuencias para Payback (The Secret Life of Samantha McGregor, la historia deas mentalidade.
Cal potential Carlo Ginzburg is thus at pains at several points in The Cheese and the Worms to illustrate Menocchio s representativeness of the culture around him More precisely Ginzburg claims that by examining the way Menocchio a man of the oral culture interprets or in some cases willfully misreads the books he encounters representatives of the print culture we can thereby discern certain ualities of the oral culture or may do so at Band of Soldiers least to the degree that the oral culture is extricable from that of print and to the degree that separate spheres of culture may be defined along certain media Ginzburg makes this case compellingly One way he does so is by pointing to Montereale s seeming tolerance of Menocchio and his ideas without which Menocchio would have been hauled inong before he was for the first time in 1583 and only then after he was ratted on by the village priest Hence Menocchio s popularity with the villagers despite his often despised profession as miller Hence also his election as mayor and one villager s description of him as a man who is everybody s friend Tolerance is not to say acceptance as Menocchio s only confessed follower in Montereale was an illiterate carpenter named Melchiorre Possibly this is a result of what Ginzburg calls elsewhere in the text one of several channels feeding into a popular current of which so far very The Jewels of Manhattan little is known favoring toleration a few traces of which can be discerned in the course of the sixteenth century This tolerance of the populace is evidence of a public at sharp odds with the Catholic authorities one that becomes interesting inight of the relative Nation as Mother literacy of Montereale and environs Of the eleven books Menocchio certainly read six of them wereoaned to him from friends certainly not from his priest which seems to indicate the existence of a network of readers as Ginzburg observes it s astonishing that so much reading went on in this small town in the hills Another tack of Ginzburg s The Tryst Betrayed less convincing than the first is to search for similarities between Menocchio s heresies and those of another Italian miller from a generation prior known as Pighino the fat While such similarities do exist eg the emphasis of both heretics on the simplicity of the Gospel their disdain for Church corruption and for the sacraments these similarities are as easily explained as semiearned peasant distortions of Luther as they are a springing forth from an oral underground The sheer idiosyncrasy of Menocchio s theology and cosmogony are enough to dispel accusations of Lutheranism in his case but the same cannot be said for Pighino who in fact was denounced as a concubine keeping Lutheran We are therefore Barron's AP Biology Flash Cards, 3rd Edition left with theingering possibility that the coexistence of these cases is only a curious coincidence Even so the coincidence itself is striking especially in Amrita Sher-Gil light of the concrete evidence Ginzburg provides in his reading of the Inuisitional record These records are the foundation of Ginzburg s book They areiving documents in that they present a theology that evolves before our eyes in response to the attacks of his interrogator See for example Menocchio s distinction between a mortal soul that dies with the body and an immortal spirit that will be reunited with God at the end of time through apocatastasis This distinction is not found in the trial records of 1583 or the first half of those from 1599 but under the pressure of the inuisitor Menocchio begins splitting this particular hair On other crucial points though Menocchio remains steadfast as in his bold claim that it s important to Flashback My Life And Times In Bollywood And Beyond love our neighbor than toove God his denial of the divinity of Christ and the apparent pantheism in his statement that everything is God The danger of these beliefs to the power of the Church should they be widely adopted is self explanatory The uestion is whether there was a real risk that they would be and here the evidence is twofold First Menocchio displays through his testimony about several books especially the parascriptural chronicle Il Fioretto della Bibbia a manner of reading that was obviously one sided and arbitrary almost as if he was searching for confirmation of ideas and convictions that were already firmly entrenched These ideas and convictions or at City Improbable least the soil in which they grow come from the oral culture Second the Inuisitor s acrimonious sentence of 1584 emphasizes the sin of Menocchio s decision to share his belief not only with men of religion but also with simple and ignorant people putting their salvation at risk The implication of this statement and the cascade of vitriol that follows it is that the peasantry are susceptible to spiritual seduction than the elite who are armed with their educations The stated cause of this uality is the ostensible stupidity simplicity and ignorance of the peasant mind but this is an evasion by the inuisitor If peasants are in fact open to Menocchio s ideas it is not because of their unintelligence per se but because their unintelligence in Inuisitorial eyeseads them to hold common beliefs that is a peasant culture which may then be stoked by Menocchio and brought to The Big Bookshelf light All of which is to say that the Church saw a threat in Menocchio because he was not an isolated case and because his beliefs threatened the Inuisition s goal of heretical containment and its emphasis on the value of theological purity and consistency This emphasis in contrast to theocalization and syncretism of No Future for You late medieval Christianity was implicitly a validation of Protestant criticisms of the Church that it practiced sloppy sacerdotalism rather than properly educating its members or for that matter its clergy and was an attempt to rectify.

As with Charming the Firefighter (In Shady Grove, language culture offers to the individual a horizon ofatent possibilities a flexible and invisible cage in which he can exercise his own conditional Making India Work libertyLargely a detective endeavor of sorts witheanings towards Everwar (Cal Leandros, literary analysis The work itself is an account of a heresy trial in early modern Italy While the fate of the miller might be grim this book also offers a startling optimism As Terry Eagleton once noted the fact that we send our youth to universities where they have access to the revolutionary sway of ideas there s always hope for aiberated future Ginzburg dazzles the reader with his erudition his examination of the 16C testimony where a bit of a oud mouth freethinking miller finds himself in ecclesiastic court which wasn t uite Toruemada s Inuisition yet it was during the Counter Reformation and that didn t bode well The miller wanted an audience until he saw that his neck was on the ine His arrogant cosmology is rather fascinating Ginzburg s parsing of the books the miller had read and juxtaposing such with his testimony is rather exciting As a medievalist I run across this book all the time which is funny considering it s not really a medieval book it s Renaissanceearly modern It s made a huge splash in The Study of Old Things though so I m not surprised it finally showed up in a class of mine on the reading No Way Home listSo the gist of the story and it really does readike a story which is kind of neat is Ginzburg following the trials by the inuisition no not the one you didn t expect another one of a miller for being well batshit crazy about his theology The title comes from this miller s idea of the beginning of the universe that it kind of curdled Sequins and Spurs like cheese into being and the angels came out of itike wormsYeah It s gross And oddAnd a DK Adventures lot of the other ideas of the miller Domenico Scandella aka Menocchio are also odd and they eventually got him burnt Omg spoiler alert I know What Ginzburg is doing and then his translators the Tedeschis is taking the handful of sources we have that document Menocchio s trials and filling in the blanks to create a coherent story It s microcosm history and it s hard to categorize because Ginzburg is taking aot of In The Name of God liberties in saying what people were thinking and feeling when all we have is what they said So it s not straight up history but then it s not fiction either because we really do have all of these documentseft behind evidenced in the endnotes which you can skip reading and still understand what s going on he wrote it that way actually and has no numbers anywhere which took some getting used toWhat comes out of this is an interesting story about a crazy miller who didn t know when to shut up so I recommend it for that The historian in me just can t uite handle the eaps Ginzburg makes from the available evidence though so I m really unsure if I will hang on to it this guy goes on for 150 pages about ALL the possible explanations for this random peasant thinking that the world was formed from chaos ike the way cheese coagulates then he s Operation Lipstick like the collective unconscious is an unacceptable explanationike wtf this whole book is dumb and this guy wasted his time writing it and the translators wasted their time translating it it s From Blah to Awe literally writtenike well the miller may have gotten his ideas from THIS SMALL FAR OFF CHRISTIAN EXTREMIST GROUP because their thoughts ine up so well but actually it s completely IMPOSSIBLE FOR HIM TO HAVE EVER BEEN IN CONTACT WITH THEM DURING THIS ERA ike seriously SHUT UP u dragged it Fantastic study based on trial records of a sixteenth century Italian miller charged with heresy The book offers a glimpse into an alternative and generally unheard from world view that is full of so much imagination on the part of the miller that it should put many a fiction writer to shameThat really is its strength and virtue to be a reminder that the masses of people that now we abel as Lutheran Catholic or Anabaptist were a mess of individuals While the beliefs of the hierarchies can be isted and referenced to published works the actual beliefs of their followers remain un We should not et the ong tradition of smearing practicing Catholics as the brainwashed servants of a threatening foreign power in which sensationalist and hyperbolic depictions of the Roman Inuisition play a part from identifying the Catholic Church of the An Allegheny Homecoming late sixteenth century for what it was a repressive cruel and in modern terms fussily anal retentive organization No justification can or should be sought for torture for the wracking of Menocchio and countless others on the ropes of the strappado or in the flames of the auto da f Nor will excuses be made here on the basis of torture s application in a minority of cases or of the historical and sadly contemporary commonplaceness of the practice The human scream cuts readily through such objections The transcript of Menocchio s agonies reads Oh Jesus oh Jesus oh poor me oh poor me It is nevertheless the case that popular visions of pits and pendulums of sadistic vicars gleefully condemning Christ to die as in Ivan Karamazov s famous parable are not only wrong but do a disservice to the victims Menocchio among them of what was in fact a calculating rational blandly bureaucratic office The Inuisition targeted Menocchio not for arbitrary or merely punitive purposes
