The project deals with the influence of medieval magic and astrology on the Italian Quattrocento. This philosophical and philological study on the use and issues of the Kabbalah will include unpublished French and Italian manuscripts of Egidio da Viterbo, Niccolò Camerario and Jean Thénaud. It aims at broadening the scope of current studies in Christian Kabbalah with a thorough analysis of verbal cross-fertilization between the three linguistic traditions, Hebrew, Italian and French. This research will contribute to explore uncharted aspects of influence of Hebrew mysticism on Italian and French Humanism.
