Mangiare da cristiani: Diete, digiuni, banchetti. Storie di by Massimo Montanari PDF

By Massimo Montanari

Un modello alimentare cristiano non esiste.
Secondo los angeles tradizione apostolica non importa cosa si mangia, ma come si mangia: l’attenzione è tutta sul gesto alimentare, dai rituali del convivio al valore della frugalità. Gli uomini, però, hanno bisogno di regole, e los angeles libertà sottesa al messaggio apostolico disorienta. Anche in keeping with questo los angeles storia del cristianesimo elabora nei secoli una serie infinita di modelli alimentari, ogni volta diversi e adattabili alle più disparate circostanze, nel tentativo di ridare al cibo un valore “oggettivo” e di recuperare l’idea antropologicamente inossidabile secondo cui l’uomo è ciò che mangia.
La storia del cristianesimo è un patrimonio straordinario di consuetudini e di contagi culturali che rimandano alla tradizione ebraica, alla filosofia greca, alla scienza dietetica: dal ruolo del pane e del vino nell’eucarestia alla condanna della “gola”, dal mito del Paradiso terrestre al valore di redenzione del digiuno, dalle pratiche alimentari monastiche alle regole dell’astinenza quaresimale. Con grande efficacia evocativa, l’autore ripercorre queste storie cogliendo nel profondo l. a. forza di precetti, proibizioni, parossismi e idiosincrasie che investono anche l. a. politica e gli ordinamenti sociali. Con un occhio al presente: perché molto di quello che qui si racconta ha resistito nei secoli fino a noi.
