If the prudential or the performative self were both formations of identity that concealed one’s beliefs and convictions, the sincere self was one that made the revealing of one’s beliefs and convictions a matter of great urgency, even an ethical imperative. Sincerity was, as I will argue in Chapter 6 below, an important new ideal in the sixteenth century – one that was shaped to a large degree by the ideals of the Reformers. 63 But, as I will try to show, it was a major concern in Italy as well.
That is, they were able to conceal many aspects of their religious beliefs, opening up and speaking ‘sincerely’ only when absolutely necessary. As an itinerant silk-weaver from Modena, Paolo Gaiano, for example, who often moved back and forth between Venice and his native city, took advantage of the cover the textile industry provided to men who, like him, were highly critical of the Roman Church and very sympathetic to the ideals of religious reform. Heretical identities in the less mobile world of prosperous Venetian artisans and professionals required, in all likelihood, a greater degree of caution.
An individual’s social self even seemed less signiﬁcant than the particular role he or she assumed. Courtiers were not merely prudential; they also became artful performers. And artists too engaged in performances. Dürer, Raphael, Parmigianino, in their works, explored the different social roles an individual might assume. 54 In many ways the three forms of identity that I have introduced thus far – the social or conforming self, the prudential self, and the performative self – were all based on a relatively straightforward understanding of the relation between beliefs and role.
