L'idea di Europa nelle 'Vite' di Richelieu

Biografia e Storia nel Seicento
  • Manuela Doni,

This study explores the 'official' biographies of Richelieu published over the course of his century and is aimed at a genre of writing very rich and diverse in terms of forms, models and areas in which it can express itself. Beyond the striking differences in terms of form and substance, Richelieu’s biographies share the historical value of the French and European context, variously modulated in relation to the place and time of the composition. The texts examined, coming from England, France, Italy and Holland, trace a composite itinerary which takes into account institutional, political, ideological and propagandistic aspects. Moreover, such itinerary also contextually identifies some assumptions and different perspectives on the idea of Europe in the seventeenth century. As for the issues on Richelieu's account debated at the time, there are many affinities with the study and research topics currently analysed by modern historiography.

Manuela Doni Garfagnini has been a Professor of Modern History at the University of Florence. On many of her studies she focused on Renaissance historiography, including the editions of S. Tizio, Historiae Senenses (vol. I, 1, Roma 1992) and of M. Parenti, Ricordi Storici (1464-1467), Roma 2001 (“Historical Memories”). The demanding work carried out to create the inventory of the Carteggio Magliabechi (Rome, 1981 and 1988 - "Magliabecchi Correspondence"), which is an inexhaustible source of ideas on culture, religion and communication in the seventeenth century, is part of the research activities promoted by the Italian Historical Institute for the Modern and Contemporary Age, together with the Tizio edition.
