Chapter Summary

This chapter focuses on the cultural and religious links between early modern Italy and Spain. It aims to present a state of the question, one oriented less toward discussing what is already widely known than suggesting what might be some profitable lines of research for the near future. It evokes some individual cases as illustrative of larger patterns of cultural interaction. Thereafter it follows some general observations and questions. The chapter begins with a perfectly banal point: that cultural and religious contact between Spain and Italy during the early modern period took place not only via the circulation of texts and objects. It also rested on the intense human traffic between the two peninsulas. The purpose of documenting these links is to allow them to serve as exemplars of the types of contacts, transfers of influence, and instances of cultural transformation that resulted from displacements of this sort.

Keywords: circulation of texts; cultural interaction; human traffic; Italy; religious links; Spain; transfers of influence; types of contacts
