La Valle Camonica nella scienza antiquaria del primo Seicento
Ebook in formato Pdf leggibile su questi device:
In the early XVIIth century in Valle Camonica, a valley of the central Italian Alps, public officials of the Commune made use of antiquities and medieval archive documents in order to assert the rights of their own land, providing an example of connections between historical scholarship and political affairs. Chancellors of the Commune were in fact engaged in some correspondence with contemporary antiquaries: chancellors Bernardino Ronchi and Alberto Isonni with Ottavio Rossi, a widely known scholar, and with Pietro Paolo Ormanico, an acute reader of classical inscriptions, both from Brescia. Meanwhile, Rossi and Ormanico, but also Philippus Cluverius, professor at Leiden, were able to establish on new foundations the ancient and medieval history of that region: sources for their studies were Roman inscriptions, relevant to the Tribus Quirina and Res Publica Camunnorum, and ancient geographical works, medieval Latin chronicles and medieval epigraphic monuments.
