Il gioco dell’oca

Il gioco dell’oca


An essay on the reformer Jan Hus, burnt alive because he had the courage to manifest that reformist thought that preceded Lutheranism.

Pietro Ratto returns to unhinging the official historiography with this new edition of The Game of the Goose, one of his most original and stinging essays, analyzing this time the most censored background of the trial filed, in 1415, against the great Bohemian reformer Jan Hus . An opportunity to resurrect also various unpublished and disturbing details related to the life of its main rival: Pope John XXIII, considered antipope only since 1958. A unique and irreverent essay, with almost noir tones, which analyzes the historical period between XIV and fifteenth century, sailing in sharp contrast to the history that is learned in school.
