Abstract :
Printed descriptions of ceremonies, festivities and pageants were a growth sector of publishing in the 16th and 17th cs. Giving particular attention to the publishing format of such works, this article analyzes 110 examples produced in Rome between 1623 and 1655. The vast majority are quarto pamphlets of no more than 16 pages. Political, devotional and commercial motives were driving this type of publication, which participated in the general increase of cheap printed sub-book genres in the 17th c. In Baroque Rome ceremonial publications reflected the responsiveness of Catholic monarchs and religious orders to the new possibilities of cheap print as well as the growing commodification of news in these decades. ;
