 Chronica Naierensis

(1,566 words)

Author(s): Henriet, P.
Chronicle of Najera Chronica Naierensis Date: Between about 1173 and 1190 Original Language: Latin Description The Chronica Naierensis has conventionally been dated to the middle of the 12th century, but its most recent editor, Juan A. Estévez Sola, has identified borrowings from the Historia scholastica of Petrus Comestor. This work was completed in 1173, giving a terminus post quem for the writing of the Chronica. Other elements suggest a date of composition to the 1180s at the earliest. However, Estévez Sola has suggested that there was a first, earlier r…

Chronica Naierensis

Author(s): Henriet, P.
Unknown author Date of Birth: Unknown; probably early or mid-12th century Place of Birth: Unknown Date of Death: Unknown; probably late 12th or early 13th century Place of Death: Unknown Biography The author of the Chronica Naierensis has traditionally been identified as a Cluniac monk from the priory of Santa-María de Nájera. It is certain that he was particularly interested in this monastery, and reports its foundation. He was familiar with and made use of a Cluniac text (Gilo's Vita Hugonis), which no one in the Iberian peninsula previously knew. Recently, Carlos Reglero…

Lucas of Tuy

(483 words)

Author(s): Henriet, P.
Lucas Tudensis Date of Birth: Between about 1180 and 1200 Place of Birth: Unknown Date of Death: 1249 Place of Death: Tuy Biography Almost all we know about the life of Lucas of Tuy comes from his own works. Although his origins are uncertain, he identified himself as being from León ( in hac nostra civitate). His forename is unusual, and Peter Linehan (‘Dates and doubts’) has suggested that he may have been of Italian origin. It is generally accepted that he was a Canon Regular at the collegiate church of St Isidore in the town of León, but we have no indisputable docu…

 Historia Silensis

(1,564 words)

Author(s): Henriet, P.
Historia Silensis Historia Silensis Date: Between 1109 and 1118 Original Language: Latin Description The Latin chronicle incorrectly entitled Historia Silense is one of the most important chronicles of 12th-century Spain. Attributed to an anonymous monk, it certainly does not originate from Silos (Castile), but rather from León or Sahagún. It occupies just under 100 pages in the most recent edition (1959). Reporting the events of the 8th to 10th centuries, it relies on the Chronicle of Alfonso III (q.v.) and the Chronicle of Sampiro (q.v.), which has disappeared in its origina…

 Vita Sancti Isidori

(2,298 words)

Author(s): Henriet, P.
Life of St Isidore Vita Sancti Isidori Date: Uncertain; late 12th to early 13th century Original Language: Latin Description The Vita Sancti Isidori (BHL 4486) is a complex text which, without the passage on Muḥammad (see below), occupies some 20 pages in the folio edition of Acta sanctorum. Incorporated into the narrative is a complete series of documents: letters of Isidore, more or less authentic, a Lamentum poenitentiae (7th century?), a Visigothic epitaph, and a hymn in honor of the saint. The author knows the Obitus of Redemptus (7th century) and the Adbreviatio Sancti Brauli de Vi…

 Passio Pelagii

(1,091 words)

Author(s): Henriet, P.
The Passion of Pelagius Raguel Date: Before 967 Original Language: Latin Description The Passio Pelagii tells the story of the young Pelagius, nephew of Bishop Ermogius of Tuy in Galicia. In 920, Ermogius was captured in battle, and his ten-year-old nephew Pelagius was sent to Cordova as a hostage in his place, only to be martyred in 925, when he was not yet 14 years old, because he refused to yield to the advances of the emir. The Passio Pelagii ( BHL 6617) is a fairly short text of about six pages in modern editions. It is conserved in at least six manuscripts, all Spanish…

Raguel

(124 words)

Author(s): Henriet, P.
Biography The name Raguel does not appear in the text of the Passio, though at the beginning of MS El Escorial b-l-4, which is dated to the beginning of the 11th century, there is a marginal note that reads 'Raguel presbyter doctor fuit huius passionis Cordobensis [ auctor]'. This in itself does not necessarily indicate, as is sometimes believed, that Raguel was himself a priest of Cordova, but simply that he was a priest and also the author of a text that reported events that occurred in Cordova. Details in the Passio, however, indicate that he knew the city intimately, and was proba…

Author(s): Henriet, P.
‘Book of the miracles of the most blessed Isidore’ Lucas of Tuy Date: Before 1239 Original Language: Latin Description The Liber miraculorum beatissimi Isidori (this is the form given in the oratio auctoris; in the Prologue it is Liber miraculorum sancti doctoris Ysidori) was begun between 1221 and 1224 and certainly finished before 1239. It relates events following the translation of the relics of the saint from Seville, at that time a Muslim city, to the city of León in 1063. The matters reported relate to the period from that date to the beginning of the 13th century, but those specific…
