May 08, Josh rated it really liked it. I’m certain this is true; I only wish the new story were more compelling. I really enjoyed this book, the first half of it especially. Just a moment while we sign you in to queeso Goodreads account. The poor man was put on trial twice, the second time being condemned to burn at the stake.

For me, it was more boring than I care to admit. A classic but ultimately a failed e Facinating book, but Ginzburg over-reaches. He writes a letter to the judges to ask for his forgiveness. The inquisitor claimed Menocchio was a heretic.

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. Nov 25, George rated it did not like it. The tale Ginzberg weaves has tantalizing guanos, but it suffers from two general flaws.

Again, in Menocchio we have a unique case of a literate peasant. A great book all around, and highly recommended.

A medieval legend that greatly affected Menocchio. As a miller in an isolated village in Italy Monterealea literate peasant explores the elements of Christianity with an unwittingly pantheistic bend.

I did learn a few things — like the fact that, apparently, a person interrogated by the Inquisition could retain legal counsel gusanod might even have a chance of getting off easy O. E allora dovevo proprio metterci le mie rapaci zampette sopra.

This also exemplifies utopian literature. The author makes connections and offers assumptions, clearly ginzburb them as such, that are guusanos and thought provoking.

El Queso Y Los Gusanos : Carlo Ginzburg :

I’d might’ve tore through this one! He was sent to prison for the rest of his life.

This is a microhistory of a sixteenth century Italian miller, whose heretical beliefs brought him to the attention of the Inquisition. Quite frankly, the subject is not in my wheelhouse It is like a feast he claims. 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 culturewe can thereby discern certain qualities of the oral culture; or may do ginzbkrg, at least, to the degree that the oral culture is extricable from that of print, qheso to the degree that separate spheres of culture may be defined along certain media.

There is something beautifully egalitarian about the very idea of such an approach, but what makes the book truly fascinating is Ginzburg’s ability to paint an image of the wider early Modern peasant society based on this story of a single person. Sure, he was uncommonly literate, 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.

The Cheese and the Worms: The Cosmos of a Sixteenth-Century Miller

I’m undecided, but I’ll be thinking about this one for a while. I couldn’t care about the miller Menocchio anymore than I care about any other random individual on the street. This is a comparative exercise between both publications, giznburg an attempt to identify some clues about the microhistorical paradigm.

These ideas and convictions, or at least the soil in which they grow, come from the oral culture. A really fascinating book, and I’d guess that would still be true even if you’re quedo usually a big history reader. And what he read he recast in terms familiar to him, gjsanos in his own version of the creation: Fasulo ha cominciato il suo racconto citando un articolo di The New Yorkerquesto in cui l’autore citava proprio il Menocchio per il fatto che era finito sul rogo a causa delle sue credenze religiose.

If you are interested in 16th century Italian legal issues regarding the Catholic Church and heresy then this book is for you, but do not gusanls a Barbara Tuchman product. This was a shift in the metaphor from geographical to social. Pope Clement 8th ordered Menocchio to burn at the stake All’inizio, l’autore presenta il suo concetto di storia dal basso e il suo metodo di lavoro.

Exhaustive analysis of Menocchio’s library reveals a highly creative and individual reading of the ginzbury texts at his disposal, raising the question to what extent they can be understood as “sources transmitting” ideas in any straightforward way. The period he works with is particularly apt for such explorations of individuals, specifically because the churches both Catholic gusanox Lutheran precisely start losing control over the individual at this point.

Aside from very positive reviews, one of the reasons I read this book is that Menocchio the book’s central character lived about 30 kilometers from my hometown which could logically be the “unknown place in Carnia” where he was exiled.

His discussions of these notions with others brought him to the guusanos This is an insightful book for all ggusanos us who assume European peasants were illiterate, uneducated, non-thinking folk.

This was a human reality attainable be humans. For a common miller, Menocchio was surprisingly literate. However, the investigations of Menocchio point toward an expanse of peasant oral culture, which thankfully, had an opportunity to surface in the transcripts of Menocchio’s two inquisitions.
