Example text

The Italy of the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries, we learn, was more crime-ridden than any other European country. 105 But the crimes of individual tyrants outstripped those of mercenaries and career criminals both in terms of ruthlessness and magnitude. Burckhardt saves his strongest language for those notorious individuals for whom cruelty was an end in itself. The country that brought us the perfection of individualism, he writes, also brought us ‘instances of that ideal and absolute wickedness which delights in Consummate Criminals 31 crimes for their own sake, and not as a means to an end’.

But if we answer this question in the affirmative, we shall have to place how many Visconti, Sforzeschi, Malatesti, Borgias, Farnesi, and princes of the houses of Anjou and Aragon in the list of these maniacs? 114 32 The Homosexual Revival of Renaissance Style How it came to be that generations of Italian Renaissance families followed barbarous practices is explained in three ways by Symonds: using a discourse of degeneration, using a theory of infection, and using a quid pro quo model—similar to Burckhardt’s—of progress and barbarism (that is, radical advancements of human culture are likely to be accompanied by extreme violence).

141 In 1527 Strozzi failed to capitalize on a chance to become even more powerful because of ‘a guilty fondness’ for ‘the young and handsome Ippolito [de’ Medici]’,142 a circumstance that, given the preceding description of the despot, clearly suggests same-sex desire. Symonds finds evidence of homosexual activity at the Vatican, also. At one point he imagines the most notorious pontiffs of the fifteenthand sixteenth-centuries in a ‘Pageant of Popes’, at the front of which rides the tyrannical Paul II.
