A long-forgotten trade and an unheard-of saint are brought to life in this tale of survival by hard work in the thriving cities of late medieval and early modern northern Italy. Indispensable immigrants recreates the world of peasants from the Alps and the Apennines who in order to survive came down to the cities of the Po Valley to work as wine porters. They joined the stream of labourers from the countryside whose willingness to do the heavy lifting that city dwellers preferred to avoid helped oil the wheels of the urban economy. Their counterparts of today have travelled greater distances to reach their new social and psychological environments, but the challenges they encounter are strikingly similar to those the porters faced long ago. Confronted with unrelenting mockery and disdain as well as low wages, the wine porters gained a measure of esteem - self-esteem at least - by making one of their own, Alberto of Villa d'Ogna, their patron saint, and keeping his cult alive for five centuries. During that half millennium, the wine porters and the cult of St Alberto sustained one another with what they both needed most, namely respect. Even though Alberto met the traditional, community-based expectations of a saint in the thirteenth century and then the profoundly different criteria for papal canonization five centuries later, once the wine porters became obsolete, both their work and his cult faded from memory.

Humanism and Education in Medieval and Renaissance Italy

Based on the study of over 500 surviving manuscript school books, this comprehensive 2001 study of the curriculum of school education in medieval and Renaissance Italy contains some surprising conclusions. Robert Black's analysis finds that continuity and conservatism, not innovation, characterize medieval and Renaissance teaching. The study of classical texts in medieval Italian schools reached its height in the twelfth century; this was followed by a collapse in the thirteenth century, an effect on school teaching of the growth of university education. This collapse was only gradually reversed in the two centuries that followed: it was not until the later 1400s that humanists began to have a significant impact on education. Scholars of European history, of Renaissance studies, and of the history of education will find that this deeply researched and broad-ranging book challenges much inherited wisdom about education, humanism and the history of ideas.

Possible Lives uses the saints'lives written by humanists of the Italian Renaissance to explore the intertwining of classical and religious cultures on the eve of the European Reformation. The lives of saints were among the most reproduced and widely distributed literatures of medieval and early modern Europe. During the century before the Reformation, these narratives of impossible goodness fell into the hands of classicizing intellectuals known as humanists. This study examines how the humanist authors received, criticized, and rewrote the traditional stories of exemplary virtue for patrons and audiences who were surprisingly open to their textual experiments. Drawn from a newly constructed catalog of primary sources in manuscript and print, the cases in this book range from the lure of martyrdom as the West confronted Islam to the use of saints'lives in local politics and the rhetorician's classroom. Frazier discusses the writers'perceptions of historical sanctity, the commanding place of the mendicant friars, and one unique account of a contemporary holy woman. Possible Lives shows that the classical Renaissance was also a saintly Renaissance, as humanists deployed their rhetorical and philological skills to "renew the persuasive force of Christian virtue" and "save the cult of the saints." Combining quantitative and anecdotal approaches in a highly readable series of case studies, Frazier reveals the contextual richness of this little-known and unexpectedly large body of Latin hagiography.
