Join us to workshop “Cowboys in the Colosseum: Papal Power, Cattle Rustling, and Meat Supply in Early Modern Italy,” a chapter from Brad Bouley’s current book project.
Brad Bouley (Assistant Professor, Department of History) specializes in histories of religion and science in the early modern, especially Italian, context. He is author of Pious Postmortems: Anatomy, Sanctity, and the Catholic Church in Early Modern Europe (UPenn, 2017). His current project, The Barberini Butchers: Meat, Murder, and Warfare in Early Modern Italy, investigates papal food policies formed during the Counter Reformation in an effort to promote Rome as an early modern city.
