Santas y marcadas: itinerarios de lectura modélicos en las obras de las místicas bajomedievales impresas por Cisneros

  • 1. Heinrich-Heine-Universität Düsseldorf


In this article I analyze the devotional post-incunabula commissioned by Cardinal Francisco Ximénez Cisneros through a case study: the Liber qui dicitur Angela de Fulginio (1505), which also includes Liber specialis (aka spiritualis) gratiae by Mechthild von Hackeborn and the Prima regula by Francis of Assisi. In the first place, I will study the specific versions of the works which were finally printed, through their comparison with their European manuscript tradition. In the second place, I will discuss the presence of a reformist program linked with Cisnero’s intentions through specific fragments emphasized by printed maniculae in the margins of the book.
