Simone Maghenzani

Dr Simone Maghenzani (Girton College) has been awarded a David Walker Memorial Fellowship in Early Modern History, Bodleian Library, 2019/20, to work on a project entitled: Converting Venice: English Networks and the Interdict Crisis

Dr Maghenzani will be working on the dynamics of conversion and religious propaganda in Venice in the early seventeenth-century, in particular in the context of the attempted shift of the Republic of Venice to Protestantism in the 1610s. In this context, he will also look at the history of the translation of the Book of Common Prayer into Italian.

This research will contribute to a forthcoming book: Converting Venice: The Crisis of the Reformation and the Catholic World (1590-1620).
