Ginzberg used the story of Menocchio, a sixteenth century miller who was twice prosecuted and ultimately condemned by the inquisition for holding and preaching egregiously heretical beliefs.

Ginzberg uses his story to attempt to reveal what ideas were floating around in the general peasant population concerning the reformation and Catholic and protestant doctrine. The tale Ginzberg weaves has tantalizing possibilities, but it suffers from two general flaws.

The most grave of which is that he clearly had too much information for a concise paper, but far too little evidence for a satisfying monograph.

Furthermore, making 62 chapters out of pages seems to be little more than the classic and transparent undergraduate technique to fill space. In his defense, the lack of pages comes not from a lack of research, but from a limited information pool — it seems that too many documents have been lost to time.

Ginzberg also patents what has become the downfall of microhistories by writing up to chapter 61 on just Menocchio, and then in the next to last chapter attempting to explain unconvincingly how this single man illustrates a sampling of the greater picture. When Ginzberg found himself in this said predicament, his resolution was to grasp at straws and attempt to make broad claims for which his work did not lay the proper foundation to support.

That said, as the first in its field, and as a highly intriguing study about a most interesting man, the work merits reading and re-reading — once for content and a second for technique.

No justification can or should be sought for torture, for the wracking of Menocchio and countless others on the ropes of We should not let the long tradition of smearing practicing Catholics as the brainwashed servants of a threatening foreign power—in which sensationalist and hyperbolic depictions of the Roman Inquisition play a part—from identifying the Catholic Church of the late sixteenth century for what it was: a repressive, cruel, and in modern terms fussily anal-retentive organization.

The human scream cuts readily through such objections. The Inquisition targeted Menocchio not for arbitrary or merely punitive purposes, but because they rightly ascertained the very real threat he posed to Catholic hegemony in the hills of Friuli. More precisely, Ginzburg claims that by examining the way Menocchio, a man of the oral culture, interprets or in some cases willfully misreads the books he encounters representatives of the print culture , we can thereby discern certain qualities of the oral culture; or may do so, at least, to the degree that the oral culture is extricable from that of print, and to the degree that separate spheres of culture may be defined along certain media.

Ginzburg makes this case compellingly. Even so, the coincidence itself is striking, especially in light of the more concrete evidence Ginzburg provides in his reading of the Inquisitional record.

They are living documents, in that they present a theology that evolves before our eyes, in response to the attacks of his interrogator. This distinction is not found in the trial records of or the first half of those from , but under the pressure of the inquisitor, Menocchio begins splitting this particular hair.

The question is whether there was a real risk that they would be, and here the evidence is twofold. These ideas and convictions, or at least the soil in which they grow, come from the oral culture. The implication of this statement—and the cascade of vitriol that follows it—is that the peasantry are more susceptible to spiritual seduction than the elite, who are armed with their educations. This emphasis, in contrast to the localization and syncretism of late medieval Christianity, was implicitly a validation of Protestant criticisms of the Church—that it practiced sloppy sacerdotalism rather than properly educating its members, or for that matter its clergy—and was an attempt to rectify these faults.

This was done for reasons both moral the genuine desire for spiritual improvement and political the destruction of Protestantism , and there is often much overlap between these categories.

The renewed vigor, and consequent cruelty, of the Church during the Counter-Reformation meant that, barring overly literal counter-factuals i.
