The workshop concentrates on the function that affective bonds have for Petrarch’s formation of intellectual and social communities. Our aim will an in-depth analysis of the role of the affects in Petrarch’s community-formation and in his humanism. We will explore how Petrarch’s understanding and representation of emotions departed from the tensions between his Stoic mistrust of emotions on the one hand and deeply affective tendencies on the other. Particular attention will be given to a comparative analysis of the role of the affects in Petrarch’s Latin and vernacular works: we will look for the entanglements and overlaps between them, especially as they relate to affective bonds.
