Abstract

The friction between acceptance and rejection of ancient mythology has crossed a great part of Italian literary history, at least until XIXth century, when the culture of the Ancien Régime comes to an end: the fi rst part of the essay provides a brief summary of the many types of conciliation and compromise tempt in the diffi cult coexistence between the mythological and biblical sections of the repertoire of ancient fables. Then, focusing on the time of Protestant and Catholic reformation, it considers some examples set in the Roman context of the fi rst decades of the seventeenth century (Giovanni Ciampoli and Sforza Pallavicino), to show a possible solution of this unceasing contention.
