Storia sacra e profana nei volgarizzamenti medioevali
Sacred and Profane History in Medieval Translations into the Vernacular: Linguistic and Cultural Aspects

Rilievi di lingua e di cultura

Edited by: Michele Colombo, Paolo Pellegrini, and Simone Pregnolato

This volume discusses medieval volgarizzamenti of historical writings (religious as well as profane). All fourteen studies recognise the fact that in the late Middle Ages, these texts were an important meeting point for elitist and popular culture which mutually stimulated each other. At the same time, different worlds of knowledge came together as history, mythology, hagiography, and biblical narration were considered to form one entity.
