Abstract

This essay compares three inventories (of warehouses and bookshops) and a ledger - all datable to the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries - to assess the influence of the commentaries for the fortunes of Dante’s Commedia and the reading tastes of readers in Bologna and Ferrara. It will also provide a brief history of the reception of Dante’s works in this period.
