Title: Le fonti ebraiche del De Harmonia Mundi di Francesco Zorzi
Authors: Campanini, Saverio
Issue Date: 1999
Publisher: Padova, Editoriale Programma
Abstract: The article focuses on the Jewish sources of Francesco Zorzi's masterpiece 'De Harmonia Mundi totius cantica tria' (Venice 1525). The massive usage of Jewish texts, always read in the original allows not only to make conjectures about the dimensions of Zorzi's Judaistic library, but also offers an original perspective on the attitude held by the Venetian friar towards the Jews and Judaism. From the identification and the analysis of the Jewish sources of the 'De Harmonia mundi' a new light is shed on the central role played by Jewish tradition and, particularly, by kabbalistic texts, on the theological and philosophical background of this too often overlooked but decisive work of European Renaissance.
