Teodolinda: immagini e metamorfosi di una regina tra Medioevo ed età moderna
Ebook in formato Pdf leggibile su questi device:
This article deals with the myth of queen Theodolinda, concentrating on the centuries between the Late Middle Ages and the Early Modern Era. During this period, the Lombard ruler – highly praised by pope Gregory the Great and Paul the Deacon – was regarded as an exemplary model of Christian virtues and political skills in a wide range of narrative texts. Making use of her exceptional qualities – so it was commonly believed –, she had managed to convert not only her husband(s), but also the fierce Lombard people. Far from being just a local or dynastic heroine, Theodolinda was thus portrayed as an ideal of feminine behaviour and, more generally, as a suitable moral guide in the face of the new religious and social challenges.
