    Comments
    In this course, we will explore notions of time and of universal and political history across a variety of genres of medieval Iberian literature. In particular, we will examine how competing notions of Fortune and Providence, on the one hand, and rationalism and prophecy, on the other, conditioned debates about political destiny as Castile and Portugal were consolidating their Iberian territories and beginning the process of imperial expansion. Readings will include the historiographic texts of Alfonso X, Juan de Mena?s Laberinto de Fortuna, Gutierre Diaz de Games?s El Victorial, and selections from royal chronicles of the fifteenth century. Conducted in Spanish.
