Summary

This one-day workshop will explore the particular relationships between Naples, violence and religion in the early modern period and later historiography. Commentators frequently remarked on a cruelty or violence in baroque Naples and its art. This was occasionally ascribed to something ‘Spanish’. How are we to understand the paradigm of violence in early modern Naples? Are there better models than that of violence to interpret the religious beliefs, practices and art of early modern Naples? These questions will be explored through papers from emerging scholars from several different disciplines.
