On the front cover the complete title is Cancionero de diuersas obras de nueuo trobadas: hechas y corregidas por el padre fray Ambrosio Montesino de la orden de los menores (all written and corrected by Father fray Ambrosio Montesino of minor order).

The complete poetic work, of a famous Spanish author, very well known as a translator of the famous Vita Christi of Ludolphus of Saxonia, by custom order of Cardinal Francisco Jiménez de Cisneros.

This edition in all his verses, takes the beginning a “Meaningful letter... for King Don Fernando our Lord”, that is the best expression to introduce the content (the author helps us from rush which is always present): “Your excellence had always asked me to compile all the studies on the subject and mystery of our faith, and I have compiled devotion songs from the past and now that I could see a rest from the storm of my occupation next to preaching, I have created this work on your appointment. In it, I have sent to the printer everything that helps to serve God and to you...”

A divine book of songs, where there are no missing prose texts. He was a celebrated author of his time: people who ordered and appreciated his texts a great deal.

The xylographic archbishop shield, illustrates  the imposition of the chasuble  to Saint Ildefonso, by the Virgin Mary.

On the shield, inside a xylographic frame, we can see an illustration of the representation of the stigmatization of Saint Francis; at the end a royal shield.

International social justice movements and the debates that ensued prompted us to start considering the contents of our website from a critical point of view. This has led us to acknowledge that most of the texts in our database are Western-centered. We have asked the authors of our content to be aware of the underlying racial and cultural bias in many scholarly sources, and to try to keep in mind multiple points of view while describing the manuscripts. We also recognize that this is yet a small, first step towards fighting inequality.

If you notice any trace of racist or unjust narratives in our communications, please help us be part of the change by letting us know.
