The first modern edition of Lodovico Dolcea€™s Dialogo della instituzion delle donne, originally published in Venice in 1545 with the printing presses of Gabriele Giolito. A vernacular translation and adaptation (or plagiarism, according to some) of the 1538 edition of the De institutione foeminae Christianae by the Spanish humanist Juan Luis Vives, the Dialogo was one of the most successful works on female conduct written in sixteenth-century Italy. Dolce transformed Vivesa€™s didactic treatise into a dialogue, in which Flaminio teaches the widow Dorotea rules of conduct for the three stages of lay womena€™s lives, that is, as unmarried girls, married women, and widows. Whilst indebted to its Latin source in terms of the ideas and precepts presented, and the many exempla used to substantiate them, Dolcea€™s Dialogo is nevertheless also new and original. In the lively publishing market of the time, the fruitful collaboration between Dolce and Giolito targeted new circles of readers, including women, who were not necessarily familiar with Latin, and who welcomed translations and adaptations into the vernacular such as this. Contents include: a historical introduction to the author, his time, and his work; the Italian text with notes; a bibliography; an index of names.... ed. by Charles Fantazzi (Leiden: Brill, 2006) a€”a€”, The Education of a Christian Woman: A Sixteenth-Century Manual, ed. and trans. by Charles Fantazzi ( Chicago: ... 223a€“55 Bragantini, Renzo, a#39;a€œPoligrafia€ e umanisti volgaria#39;, in Malato ( ed.)anbsp;...
