By Gregorio Magno

I "Dialogi" di Gregorio Magno, composti in latino in quattro libri, furono tra i più amabili, drammatici e insieme divertenti testi del Medioevo. In un’Italia invasa dai goti e longobardi, visitata dalle pestilenze e dalla carestia, tutto period caos e tenebra. Restavano solo i monaci a compiere prodigi: resuscitavano i morti, liberavano gli ossessi, moltiplicavano olio e vino. Il testo, composto in line with un pubblico vasto e popolare, è riproposto con l. a. cura di Manlio Simonetti e Salvatore Pricoco.
