Whose Triumph? Strategic Appropriations in Venetian Ritual Contexts

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

As is often noted by historians of Venetian ritual, until the entrata of the new French king Henri III in 1574, no reigning foreign monarch had been formally received in Venice with a classical triumphal apparatus. Yet Venetian territories were often traversed by emperors, kings, queens, princes, and princesses as well as members of the Church throughout the long Renaissance, and classical arches and allusions had become standard elements in their reception. Often, major entries in other centers included Venetian diplomatic participation and Venice's busy chroniclers reported on these ceremonies, her printing presses produced the memorial festival livrets that commemorated these events. I propose to consider the repurposing of ritual in Venetian and Venetan contexts from a chronotopical position. The strategic appropriation and transformation of particular festive contexts gave meaning to Roman ceremonial imagery in the cultural landscape of the Republic.
