Scambi agiografici tra storia e cultura nella Sicilia tardoantica

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


    [automatically translated] Within milieux politically oriented towards saving uplifting memories, the hagiographic literature allows the recovery of the cultural history of Sicily segments. In Sicily, in fact, the very rich heritage hagiography found a perfect synthesis of significant and polyphonic remains of an illustrious past, becoming a vector of faith and ecumenical strategies at the point of encounter between East and West. In particular, the study of monastic and cenobitic routes covered helps to define the role of the Mediterranean island deployed in Late Antiquity and to understand the perspective of the gap to the new phenomenology of the availability of a territory that the Normans would have brought to Europe.
