Italian Benedictine Scholars and the Reformation

The Congregation of Santa Giustina of Padua

Barry Collett

A Clarendon Press Publication

Oxford Historical Monographs

This book explores the intriguing role of the almost-forgotten Congregation of Benedictine monks of Italy and southern France in the eventful years between 1480 and 1570. This book casts light on the monks' fascinating reaction to the Reformation, as they poured out a stream of academic books, tracts, sermons, and poems in their attempt to heal the deepening rift between Rome and the Reformers.
