Fulke Greville and the Culture of the English Renaissance

The relationship between Fulke Greville and Giordano Bruno during the years of Bruno’s sojourn in England are difficult to reconstruct due to the scarcity of direct testimonies, and documents that can aid in their reconstruction. This chapter will focus, through the examination of certain political themes shared between Bruno’s Italian dialogues and Greville’s sonnet sequence Caelica, and secondly through a reading of the figure of the invidious Erinys, on the debate on republicanism, in which both shared an interest, and lastly, on the religious differences symbolized by the Erinys, whose consequences at the time were wreaking havoc on England and Europe.

Keywords:   Greville, Fulke, Bruno, Giordano, politics, republicanism, religion
