Chapter Summary

This index presents a list of terms and concepts relevant to the study of the hagiographical works of Antonio Gallonio. Gallonio's hagiographical works differ widely. He wrote an inventory and classification of the tortures to which Christian martyrs had been exposed, in two editions, one in Italian (1591) and one in Latin (1594). He also wrote biographies of holy virgins, both in Italian and in Latin. The last work that Gallonio published during his lifetime was the life story of Filippo Neri. Gallonio's hagiographical work shows how Roman Catholic culture in the early modern period partly rejected worldly interests and partly appropriated them to suit its own interests.

Keywords: Antonio Gallonio; Christian martyrs; hagiography; Roman Catholic culture
