In recent decades, historians of language have directed increasing
attention to the relationship between the Italian language and the world
of religion, transforming what was once a sidebar in university textbooks
into a privileged chapter. The importance of the topic is manifest: since
its beginnings, religion has been intertwined with matters of language,
for the Church has continuously educated speakers and readers, especially
through preaching, the translation of sacred texts, and the diffusion of
devotional works in the vernacular.
