Argues that the increased bureaucracy needed to support the expansion of individual Bolognese confraternities led to the aristocratization or pseudo-professionalization thereof, while the Council of Trent effectively placed confraternities under parish control.

The end result was the local politicization of these confraternities, which had formerly existed outside of but in tandem with formal political and ecclesiastical institutions.

New Releases. Description This book analyses the social, political and religious roles of the confraternities - the lay groups through which Italians of the Renaissance expressed their individual and collective religious beliefs - in Bologna in the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries. These confraternities shaped the civic religious cult through charitable activities, public shrines and processions. This civic religious role expanded as the confraternities became politicised: patricians used the confraternities increasingly in order to control the civic religious cult, civic charity, and the city itself.

The book examines in detail how confraternities initially provided laypeople of the artisanal and merchant classes with a means of expressing a religious life separate from, but not in opposition to, the local parish or mendicant house. By the mid-sixteenth century, artisans and merchants had few options beyond parochial confraternities which were controlled by parish priests. Other books in this series. Add to basket.
