The night battles : witchcraft & agrarian cults in the sixteenth & seventeenth centuries by Carlo Ginzburg ( Book )
40 editions published between 1983 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,382 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Based on research in the Inquisitorial archives, the book recounts the story of a peasant fertility cult centered on the benandanti. These men and women regarded themselves as professional anti-witches, who (in dream-like states) apparently fought ritual battles against witches and wizards, to protect their villages and harvests. If they won, the harvest would be good, if they lost, there would be famine. The inquisitors tried to fit them into their pre-existing images of the witches' sabbat. The result of this cultural clash which lasted over a century, was the slow metamorphosis of the benandanti into their enemies - the witches. The author shows clearly how this transformation of the popular notion of witchcraft was manipulated by the Inquisitors, and disseminated all over Europe and even to the New World. The peasants' fragmented and confused testimony reaches us with immediacy, enabling the reader to identify a level of popular belief which constitutes a valuable witness for the reconstruction of the peasant way of thinking of this age
Ecstasies : deciphering the witches' Sabbath by Carlo Ginzburg ( Book )
29 editions published between 1990 and 2005 in English and held by 1,089 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Weaving early accounts of witchcraft - trial records, ecclesiastical tracts, folklore, and popular iconography - into new and startling patterns, Carlo Ginzburg presents in Ecstasies compelling evidence of a hidden shamanistic culture that flourished across Europe and in England for thousands of years."--BOOK JACKET
Clues, myths, and the historical method by Carlo Ginzburg ( Book )
17 editions published between 1989 and 2013 in English and held by 863 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The enigma of Piero : Piero della Francesca : the Baptism, the Arezzo cycle, the Flagellation by Carlo Ginzburg ( Book )
13 editions published between 1985 and 2002 in English and held by 795 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The Enigma of Piero is a book about painting written by a historian. Carlo Ginzburg painstakingly sifts the evidence to produce a fascinating portrait of Piero's patrons and convincing explanations for the contemporary intrigues resonant in his paintings - in particular The Baptism, The Arezzo Cycle, and the mysterious Flagellation." "Apparently trivial details - a hat, a column, the turn of a hand - lead Ginzburg into the archives to discover remarkable new chains of evidence. Making Ginzburg's impressive argument even more compelling, this new edition includes additional material dealing with the work of Roberto Longhi, the dating of The Arezzo Cycle and the rediscovery of Piero della Francesca in the twentieth century."--BOOK JACKET
Threads and traces true, false, fictive by Carlo Ginzburg ( Book )
8 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 454 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This book is a translation of historian Carlo Ginzburgʼs latest collection of essays. Through the detective work of uncovering a wide variety of stories or microhistories from fragments, Ginzburg takes on the bigger questions: How do we draw the line between truth and fiction? What is the relationship between history and memory? Stories range from medieval Europe, the inquisitional trial of a witch, seventeenth-century antiquarianism, and twentieth-century historians."--Provided by publisher
Wooden eyes : nine reflections on distance by Carlo Ginzburg ( Book )
11 editions published between 2001 and 2005 in English and held by 443 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
""I am a Jew who was born and who grew up in a Catholic country; I never had a religious education; my Jewish identity is in large measure the result of persecution." This brief autobiographical statement is a key to understanding Carlo Ginzburg's interest in the topic of his latest book: distance. In nine linked essays, he addresses the question: "What is the exact distance that permits us to see things as they are?""--BOOK JACKET
No island is an island : four glances at English literature in a world perspective by Carlo Ginzburg ( Book )

Throughout, Ginsburg's inquiry is informed by his unique microhistorical sensibility, his attention to minute detail, and his extraordinary synthesizing imagination."--BOOK JACKET
