About


Alessandro Arcangeli  (Professor of Early Modern History, University of Verona) is a cultural historian of early modern Europe with particular research interests in dance, leisure and medical thought.

He has also worked on cultural history methodologically and historiographically, both with reference to Italy and in a wider perspective. His current book projects concern the image of the dancing ‘other’ in the age of cultural encounters (the peasant, the savage, the witch) and the sixteenth-century conceptualization and classification of passions or emotions. Throughout his research he has always paid particular attention to a variety of forms of religious writing and the interaction between religious beliefs, cultural attitudes and social practice.
