EL LIBRO DEL CABALLERO ZIFAR PDF

Access options available:. This development is predicated on our construction ofthese discrete discursive traditions as well as the limited number of extant texts. For many critics, the passage from the Middle Ages to the Early Modern period implicitly centers on the deconstruction of these compartments, what Erwin Panofsky refers to as, "the barriers that had kept diings in order -but also apart- during the Middle Ages" While there is no question that the Libro del Caballero Zifar is a chivalric romance, to name one of these discursive categories, this observation by itself fails to position the work in its historical context as one of the first works of Castilian prose fiction.

The Romance of the Knight Zifar tells the story of Zifar and his family following their departure from the kingdom of Tarta hounded by misfortune. On their journey in search of a brighter future, God puts him to the test many times but Zifar accepts his misfortune with Christian resignation. The wife and children who had gone missing many years before then reappear. Just when the tale seems to end a new part of the story begins.

Zifar agrees but first he speaks to his children at length about their behaviour in the world, how they should treat others and defend the Church, impart justice etc. Not only does this codex tell a fascinating tale but the history of the manuscript itself is remarkable too, revealing the type of social circles likely to appreciate such a beautiful codex. Behind the adventures told in the Book of Zifar the Knight lies a perfect handbook for educating princes, hence it is no surprise that it always features on their bookshelves.

The Romance of the Knight Zifar is a truly exceptional book and a rarity in the context of the Castile of the first three quarters of the 15th century, a time when so little interest was shown in illuminated manuscripts and even less those on non-religious themes.

The miniatures reflect the reality of their epoch with a precision that no historian could ever have matched. As a result, the dress of men and women clearly reveals the different fashions worn in Castile when the codex was made, and likewise, the military world, the inside of houses, etc.

Everything appears before our eyes with the magic of what was commonplace in its time but is now difficult for us to understand. A copy of it was specially made for the library of Henry IV of Castile, hence its opulent lavishness. In the library of Margaret of Austria was its home and shortly afterwards, in , that of Mary of Hungary, the sister of Emperor Charles V. From there it travelled to the library of the Duke of Burgundy where the records show that it remained until the late 18th century.

Here we can read Syriac as Arabic, for the two were often seen as interchangeable at the time. Most agree that it was not itself a translation from Arabic, but was written in Castilian. Why the performance of translation? In short, relics and texts were arms and currency in a pan-Mediterranean struggle for military, spiritual, and economic supremacy between Latin Christendom and Islam. Source: Wikipedia.
