The contributions in this volume discuss the evolution of historical thought from the sixteenth to the seventeenth centuries and the profound differences between the ages of Machiavelli and Francesco Guicciardini on the one hand and Caesar Baronius and Scipione Ammirato on the other. Topics cover new methods of studying history, writing and using it in a world profoundly marked by inquisitorial repression, clericalisation of culture, the primacy of the theological method and the apologetic use of knowledge.
