BIBLIOGRAPHICAL APPENDIX
Since the appearance of the first Italian edition of this book in 1992, a great many important works have appeared on the subject of the Italian Reformation. Significant journal articles have been added to the notes in the body of the work. The discussion here is limited to recent full-length books with the exception of note 9 below.
1. Achille Olivieri, Riforma ed eresia a Vicenza nel Cinquecento ( Rome: Herder, 1992).

The account searches for ancient roots in history and begins with the penetration of the Cathar heresy in the lands owned by the Trissino family and the birth of the humanistic concept of toleration with Lorenzo Valla, through the establishment of the first Protestant conventicles. The volume is enriched by an important documentary appendix concerned with the trials of Alessandro Trissino and Odoardo Thiene.

2. Massimo Firpo, Riforma protestante ed eresia nell'Italia del Cinquecento ( Bari: Laterza, 1993).

An interesting work, with rich bibliography, which attempts to clarify the complex manifestations of Italian religious dissent. The author argues that they cannot be explained simply in terms of a reception and adaptation of northern Protestant doctrines. He views the Beneficio di Cristo as the emblematic text of an Italian current aspiring to the reform of the church.

3. Juan de Valdés, Alfabeto cristiano, Domande e Risposte, Della Predestinazione, Catechismo, a cura di Massimo Firpo ( Turin: Einaudi, 1994).

In the introduction, the author deals with the theme of the "synthesis of Erasmianism, Lutheranism and alumbradismo at the center of the Vaidesian experience, profoundly influenced by its Spanish roots" (p. lxvi).

4. Vincenzo Burlamacchi, Libro di ricordi degnissimi delle nostre famiglie, a cura di Simonetta Adorni-Braccesi ( Rome: Istituto storico italiano per l'età moderna e contemporanea, 1993).

A truly valuable edition of a fundamental source for the Italian presence in Geneva, with important information on the great Lucchese emigré families (the Balbani, Burlamacchi, Calandrini, Diodati, Turrettini).

5. Simonetta Adorni-Braccesi, "Una città infetta": La repubblica di Lucca nella crisi religiosa del Cinquecento ( Florence: Olschki, 1994).

A vast synthesis encompassing previous studies, including the many by the author herself, dedicated to the singular Italian case of an entire city involved in the religious crisis of the century. The episode concludes with the exodus of
