9780934977524: Baroque Naples : A Documentary History, 1600-1800 (Documentary History of Naples)

"Baroque Naples" presents documents on the history, culture, and art of the city during its golden age of prestige and prosperity under the Spanish Hapsburgs and Bourbons. Texts cover the history of the city and kingdom, contemporary travel guides, descriptions of the city's art, architecture and classical inheritance, its literature, music and theater. There are also chapters that offer texts by the famed Neapolitan economists, legal thinkers and philosophers of the age; a survey of religious thought, and of the Neapolitan contribution to the natural sciences. The selections are preceded by brief introductions to the writers and the ideas presented in the texts. Sixty-nine selections include Enrico Bacco, John Evelyn, Salvator Rosa, Luigi Vanvitelli, the Neapolitan "Marinisti," Pietro Trapassi (Metastasio), Giovanni Battista Della Porta, Antonio Serra, Giuseppe Palmieri, Gaetano Filangieri, Tommaso Campanella, Giambattista Vico, Fynes Moryson and many others. The volume also includes brief biographies and chronologies. 60 illustrations, 3 maps, introduction, bibliography, index.

From the Publisher:

Baroque Naples, 1600–1800 is the fourth in the Italica Press's Documentary History of Naples Series. As befits the period, Jeanne Chenault Porter's book focuses on Naples as a cultural capital, one whose brilliant achievements in the arts and letters belied — and to an extent masked — the profound social, economic, and political problems of the kingdom of Naples and of the Ancien Régime throughout Europe. These would come to a crisis in the wake of the French Revolution and prepare the way for a century of “marginalization” from which the city is only now emerging. Thus, while no one can ignore the deep structural shortcomings of the city and its kingdom during the two centuries covered in the following volume, so too no one can deny the essential truth that the years 1600 to 1800 were indeed, “the Golden Age of Naples.”

From the Author:

Baroque Naples, 1600–1800, offers a contextual approach to these two hundred years in the kingdom. Because its content is interdisciplinary, general as well as particular references are indicated in the notes for the benefit of the specialist and non-specialist alike. It is hoped that this anthology will serve as an introduction and guide to Neapolitan history, literature, and culture of this period. It is my intention to encourage the reader to explore further and become familiar with the additional works of many of these authors who, as indicated in the biographical introductions, produced far more than has been transcribed here.
