The book offers a glimpse into an alternative (and generally unheard from) world-view that is full of so much imagination on the part of the miller that it should put many a fiction writer to shame.

First published in Italian in 1976, Carlo Ginzburg’s The Cheese and the Worms has now been published in more than . The book tells the story of an obscure miller names Menocchio

Set to celebrate its fortieth anniversary next year, the monograph persists as one of the earliest and most influential examples of microhistory. The book tells the story of an obscure miller names Menocchio. The story of Menocchio emerged from the Inquisitorial documents housed in the archives of the Curia Arcivescovile in Udine, the Friulian region of Italy.

For a common miller, Menocchio was surprisingly literate.

Ginzburg quotes Menocchio as closely as posisble several times throughout the chapters, and then provides a simplified version of his own; an explanation of sorts to this worldview.

The Cheese and the Worms: The Cosmos of a Sixteenth-Century Miller was originally written in Italian by the microhistorian Carlo Ginzburg in 1976. It was assigned to me to read by my historiography professor, and I was taken away by this wonderful book. Ginzburg quotes Menocchio as closely as posisble several times throughout the chapters, and then provides a simplified version of his own; an explanation of sorts to this worldview. He relates too the origins of Menocchio's thoughts to the wide selection of books and sources discovered in the miller's home during the Inquisition.

The Cheese and the Worms (Italian: Il formaggio e i vermi) is a scholarly work by the Italian historian Carlo Ginzburg. The book is a notable example of cultural history, the history of mentalities and microhistory. It is "probably the most popular and widely read work of microhistory"

Translated by John Tedeschi, Anne C. Tedeschi. Original title: Il formaggio e i vermi: Il cosmo di un mugnaio del '500.

This was an interesting read from an historical perspective, but also as a character study and just a plain-old-fun read. I had no idea that anyone stood up to the inquisition and managed to survive (at least for a while). The precision with which the church set out to find heretics and witches, and their concern for following strict procedures is almost funny when you consider that they were trying to suppress free thought. This is portrayed as a true account of historical events and that makes it all the more intriguing. A must read for people interested in the subject matter but an entertaining read for anyone who just likes great story telling. It kind of reminds me of Umberto Eco's The Name of the Rose. It's not a mystery but the tone is similar.

I had to read this for a history class I was taking. I loved the title... which is explained in the book. I have always been interested in the Reformation... I always wondered was it just about religion or was it a social movement. For me the story
Was more social status, who had power and who didn't. Poor Menocchio was a victim of being to smart for his own good.

This was the first ground breaking micro history ever written and still stands the test of time. my european history prof used it at TTU lubbock last semester. I kept it because i loved it so much. this fall (2016) another european history professor will use it again and i can't wait to see what more there is to learn from it. :O)

An extraordinary story that defies all stereotypes anyone has about everyday medieval life and thought. One of those little cabinets of wonder.

It is a rigorous piece of research interpreted creatively in the late 60's but totally vital today. The writing is vibrant.

While I would not describe it as a page turner, I found the book to be enlightening on the effects of wealthy class culture has on the popular culture of the middle and lower classes. Over all this particular edition is good quality and a great book for academic use.

Ginzburg writes an excellent microhistory, however it drags a bit when Ginzburg addresses the trials and works that took place. More focus on the ideology of the character than the character himself.
This book deals with a subject deeper than religion. It deals with conscience, the need of a man to tell his truth to the world, something much needed nowadays. He knew he was going to get a death sentence, but he did not betrayed himself. All the power to Menocchio!
