9780860784463: Poverty and Charity: Europe, Italy, Venice, 1400–1700 (Variorum Collected Studies)

The essays in this collection, first published over a thirty-year period, attempt to show how Roman Catholic communities in early modern Europe (particularly the great cities of Italy, and Venice above all) treated poor people and organized poor relief. Some essays discuss the principal groupings of poor, from the genteel, ’shamefaced’ poor to orphans and foundlings, and from working folk to idle rogues. Others examine the motives and functions of the principal types of organization that dealt with poor people, either incidentally or as their main concern: religious brotherhoods, hospitals, conservatories, public loan banks, houses for the conversion of Jews and Muslims to Christianity. One main argument is that, although Catholics and Protestants shared a dislike and fear of vagrancy and reacted in similar ways to economic crises, Catholic charity was in many respects quite different from Protestant. Les essais contenus dans ce recueil, initialement parus sur une période de trente-quatre ans, tentent de montrer comment les communautés catholiques (romaines), à l’aube de l’Europe moderne (particulièrement dans les grandes cités italiennes et surtout à Venise), traitaient les pauvres et organisaient leur soutien. Certains essais s’interessent aux principaux groupements de pauvres: des pauvres décents et honteux , aux orphelins et enfants trouvés, ainsi que des travailleurs aux bons à rien. D’autres examinent les motifs et fonctions des principaux types d’organisations qui s’occupaient des pauvres, soit de façon occasionnelle ou en tant qu’activité principale: confrèries religieuses , hospices, conservatoires, caisses d’emprunts publiques, centres de conversion au Christianisme pour Juifs et Musulmans. Un des arguments principaux étant le suivant: Catholiques et Protestants, bien que partageant la même peur et le même dégoût vis à vis du vagabondage et que réagissant de façon analogue face aux situations de crise é
