Chapter Summary

A few years before Frances Yates's extremely successful book Giordano Bruno and the Hermetic Tradition in the Renaissance, Daniel P. Walker had published in 1958 the first historical outline of magical theories from Ficino to Campanella. At the Warburg Institute Walker carried on his research on the history of Renaissance musicology as well as on the history of ideas from the 15th to the 18th century. Professor Michele Ciliberto published his ambitious edition of Bruno's Latin works on magic. Early in 2000, Ciliberto had published Bruno's Dialoghi with a commentary. This edition of Bruno's Italian dialogues generated a sharp and protracted debate on the ethics of its publication and resulted in the setting up of a website which reproduced the various articles, for and against, that had appeared in specialized reviews and in the press.
