    Civilization and Barbarism.Carlo Ginzburg - 2017 - Sign Systems Studies 45 (3/4):249-262.
    The reflections on civilization, barbarism, and their intricate relationship, which were put forward in ancient Greece, from Herodotus to Aristotle, had a longterm impact. In the mid-16th century debate which took place in Valladolid, between Juan Ginés de Sepúlveda and Bartolomé de Las Casas, about the status of the native populations of the New World, the Latin translations of Aristotle’s Politics, and its comment by St. Thomas Aquinas, proved to be especially relevant for both opponents. Were Indian natives comparable to (...)

    Checking the Evidence: The Judge and the Historian.Carlo Ginzburg - 1991 - Critical Inquiry 18 (1):79-92.
    In the last 2500 years, since the beginnings in ancient Greece of the literary genre we call “history,” the relationship between history and law has been very close. True, the Greek word historia is derived from medical language, but the argumentative ability it implied was related to the judicial sphere. History, as Arnaldo Momigliano emphasized some years ago, emerged as an independent intellectual activity at the intersection of medicine and rhetoric. Following the example of the former, the historian analyzed specific (...)

  14. Une Machine À Penser.Carlo Ginzburg - 2012 - Common Knowledge 18 (1):79-85.
    The author describes his research experience in the 1960s, as an apprentice historian, in the Warburg Library. His work on witchcraft trials in early modern Italy, he argues, was deeply affected by the Library's unique character. Aby Warburg's law of the “good neighbour” is illustrated through a specific example: the encounter with a forgotten tract dealing with some anomalous Bavarian witchcraft trials — a book that would have been very difficult to come across anywhere but Warburg's Library.

    Introduction: Warburg's Library and Its Legacy.Anthony Grafton, Jeffrey F. Hamburger, Peter Mack, Michael Baxandall, Elizabeth Sears, Georges Didi-Huberman, Carlo Ginzburg, Joseph Leo Koerner, Christopher S. Wood & Jill Kraye - 2012 - Common Knowledge 18 (1):1-16.
    In this introduction to a Common Knowledge special issue on the Warburg Institute, the authors argue that the Institute remains today — as it has been, in different forms, for almost a century — one of Europe's central institutions for the study of cultural history. At once a rich and uniquely organized library, a center for doctoral and postdoctoral research, and a teaching faculty, the Institute was first envisioned by Aby Warburg, a pioneering historian of art and culture from a (...)

    The Letter Kills: On Some Implications of 2 Corinthians 3:6.Carlo Ginzburg - 2010 - History and Theory 49 (1):71-89.
    The paper focuses on an argument put forward by Augustine in his De doctrina Christiana: there are passages in the Bible that need to be read in a literal, contextual, and ultimately rhetorical perspective. This approach to the Bible was needed to deal with customs—for instance the patriarchs' polygamy—that had to be evaluated, Augustine argued, according to standards different from those prevailing in the present day. This need inspired Augustine to utter some sharp remarks on the need to avoid ethnocentric, (...)

    Memory and Distance: Learning From a Gilded Silver Vase (Antwerp, C. 1530).Carlo Ginzburg - 2004 - Diogenes 51 (1):99-112.
    This article concerns a silver beaker (now at the Residenzmuseum, Munich) decorated with scenes which seem to be related to the Spanish conquest of Mexico. On the basis of stylistic, iconographic and archival evidence the silversmith is here tentatively identified with an Italian-born artist, Stefano Capello, who is thought to have added a decoration to a pre-existing beaker on the eve of the treaty of Cambrai (3 August 1529). Margaret of Austria, aunt of the emperor Charles V, might have given (...)

    Momigliano and de Martino.Carlo Ginzburg - 1991 - History and Theory 30 (4):37-48.
    De Martino offered Momigliano an opportunity to reflect on his own analogous yet different experience. The connection between the study of prehistory and the threat of the end of the world, and more generally, the idea that we need to respond to today's crisis by enlarging historical research to unknown and unpredictable phenomena might lead us to conclude that, at least momentarily, Momigliano's and De Martino's paths had touched. In reality, however, as Momigliano lucidly saw, theirs were parallel paths that (...)
