 CATHOLIC ENCYCLOPEDIA: Italian Literature   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-29)
This century in Italy, as elsewhere, is the golden age of vernacular ascetical and mystical literature, producing a rich harvest of translations from the Scriptures and the Fathers, of spiritual letters, sermons, and religious treatises no less remarkable for their fervour and unction than for their linguistic value.
