Abstract

The Mantle of Merlin the Magician
The article is a review of the book of Tommaso di Carpegna Falconieri, Medioevo militante: an essay which analyzes the current political use of Middle Ages. The instrumental use is favoured by the fact that the historical concept of Middle Ages fades against a distorted and generalized view, built with recourse to stereotypes that have been consolidated during the nineteenth century.
