Description

Excerpt from The Signors of the Night: The Story of Fra Giovanni, the Soldier-Monk of Venice; And of Others in the "Silent City" I would take this opportunity of saying that, in two instances at least, the central idea of these stories is to be found in the history of Venice in the more dramatic years of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. Few of those who remember Mr. Horatio F. Brown's delightful Venetian Studies will fail to recognise the alchemist Marcantonio Bragadino in my sketch of the charlatan Zuane de Franza. It is to be doubted if there is, in the whole story of chicanery, a more remarkable figure than that of Bragadino, whose ultimate exposure was in a measure due to the powerful sermons preached against him by Fra Paolo Sarpi.
