Chapter Summary

The reconstruction of the social identities of the elite citizens involved in the interventions of the True Cross of San Giovanni's and the suggested linkages of the miracles to signal developments in their lifetimes, minimally adequate and apposite as they are, allow for a few conclusions. The first conclusion is the presence of a consistency throughout the record that does not appear due exclusively to editorial intervention. The first-person reports incorporated verbatim in the 1590 dossier, those of Piero di Lodovico and Antonio Rizzo, speak for similarity of social perceptions alongside editorial work. Second, for reasons inherent in the constitution and operation of the Venetian state, the citizen elite could not openly vent the fears that plagued them. Third, the miracles allowed a fallback on the one institution that the citizen elite could draw upon for a modicum of autonomous social identity, which the Cross signified.

Keywords: Antonio Rizzo; Piero di Lodovico; True Cross of San Giovanni; Venetian state
