The subject My understanding of the text and Part 2: Semblanzas and medieval Castilian genealogical historiography its contexts grew in the process, yet the initial impression of dealing with Chapter III: Alfonso de Cartagena's Liber genealogie an unwieldy and "strange" text did not change. I made it a heuristic and In this sense, Chapter IV: Semblanzas and early Castilian this book is a protocol of a prolonged research project and an attempt to historiography 12th to 14th century open new perspectives on Generaciones in particular, and Iberian medieval 1.

On closer scrutiny it becomes clear 1.

The problem regarding this approach is not primarily methodological, nor are the results necessarily flawed.

Few are truly peripheral in most historiographical texts of the 13lh to 15lh texts in Castilian literature have been as misconceived as Generaciones - in centuries.

In my own work, then, I am walking on the thin red line wandering of semblanzas over three centuries, I hope to provide insight in between history and criticism in an attempt to deconstruct a historical text the epistemological aspects of Castilian historiography, the impact of encrusted with layers of scholarship and to use the debris in the project of mnemonic culture and the transformation of its pragmatics.

As indicated above, in this case, the Having recontextualized the Generaciones by relating it to L6pez de insertion into this modem llberlieferungszusammenhang is equivalent to a Ayala' s and Guido' s chronicles, a new interpretation of Generaciones be- decontextualization. This will be accomplished by orienting the herme- comes conceivable e.

As the semantic analysis of an extensive corpus of neutic "pre-conceiving [Vorgri.

Semblanzas are transcripts of the author labels his text a "registro" or "memorial" 4 ,4 thus concurring the author's formation of mental "images," which enable the reader to with near-contemporary readers who essentially interpreted Generaciones recreate them. In Generaciones, Perez de Guzman' s remembrance of his as a text authenticating genealogical memory.

From this perspective, Mar de istorias can be discarded as a "model" or However, the crucial pragmatic aspect of Generaciones is the preser- crucial subtext a. I argue that Perez was not the translator, but the com- vation of genealogical memory. Perez de Guzman perceives the status of piler of a translation of Colonna's Mare historiarum, known as Mar de Las the emerging Grandes de Espana as being threatened by royal negligence, ystorias.

These allow a provisional formal and functional "registro" of important families, a "memorial" which claims noble titles, definition of semblanza: Semblanzas combine a list of physical features with a prerogatives, offices and status. His sources are exclusively "estorias moral, idiosyncratic description of a person duplex descripti. In L6pez de autenticas" 33 , reliable informants and, particularly, his own experiences Ayala's writings, they establish a narrative closure, epitomize the chronicle, and memories.

Thus he became an auctor for future genealogists.

Barrio's recent edition is not substantial progress in Generadones scholarship and Having clarified the complex mnemonic pragmatics of the Guzmanian textual criticism.

A critical edition on the basis of all relevant manuscripts has not yet been accomplished. See my semi-paleographic transcription of MS. Regarding the complex and unexplored intertextual relations of memoration, I use Generaciones as an interpretive horizon for Alfonso de Generadones with 15th.. On this basis, I examine the graphical narration. Part three of this study, genealogy, Perez de Guzman's Generaciones prefigure the transformation of therefore, goes beyond the monographic nucleus of the analysis of Ayala's semblanzas in the chronicles of the next generations.

Generaciones Generaciones y semblanzas. The earliest testimonies of vernacular Iberian became a pretext for Hernando del Pulgar, who composed his Claros va- historiography are lists of names of kings nomina regum. They bear rones de Castilla G in the s. Pulgar wrote as the official chronicler of the structural and pragmatic resemblance to lists included in early liturgical Catholic Kings. His Claros varones are incarnations of virtues; their sem- commemorative texts.

Texts like the Liber regum from the end of the 12th blanzas are an appeal to the descendents to rival the fathers' achievements. Genealogical series are prone to "absorb" historical the preservation of genealogical memory and commemoration. The charac- data. In some cases, as in the Liber regum, we find only chronological terization of the personality is subordinated to the presentation of exem- references and short portraits.

This is the locus of emergence of semblanzas. Moreover, the writing of Claros varones is for Pulgar a means to display The chronicles of individual kings of the first half of the h century are literary mastery. Appropriation of the text in the form of mnemonic ima- inscribed into a genealogy of texts, with its foundation in the Alfonsine gines in Generaciones is supplanted in Claros varones by the attempt to secure chronicles.

Structurally, they can be described as expanded entries of list the correspondence between authorial intention and the reader's interpre- type nomina regum. Commemoration and genealogical memory, however, tation. The adaptation of the Generaciones in the Claros varones marks an are only of secondary importance. The chancellor's Feman Perez de Guzman's work is the key text of this study: a crossroads, portraits highlight submerged mnemonic elements of traditional, genea- as it were, of different lines of analysis and reasoning. Furthermore, logical historiography.

It is a central objective of this chronicles. Ayala' s semblanzas are the basis of mnemonic imagines, which study to trace its structure and pragmatics in specific contexts from the late enable the memorization of extremely condensed synopses of the chron- h century to the end of the h century.

Generaciones, on the other hand, icles and commemorate the kings. The ideal reader, familiar with the total- expresses the crucial importance of genealogy and memory in the text ity of chronicles, is capable of forming a mnemonic, genealogical series of under scrutiny.

Nevertheless, the functions and pragmatics of the Period. It is also an appeal for a project to undo the modem bias for semblanzas experience a significant change. In the so-called cronicas particu- narrative forms of historiography to the detriment of other forms of pre- lares, a tendency to detailed description and eulogy is apparent; semblanzas serving or construing the memory of knowledge which contemporaries cease to be epitaphs and become part of the narrative exposition of the accepted as historically "authentic" Fleischmann , Regardless of formal continuities the mnemonic functions are weakened.

The former concept was revived by neoplatonic Re- naissance theorists Couliano From this knowledge stems the sensitive appetite of unaginative faculties. Thomas Aquinas, for example, argues in the Summa against animals to obtain a thing or flee it. Albert, on the other hand, The estimativa is truly central in the working of the brain, inasmuch as it is differentiates in De anima between the two imaginative faculties, precisely in the same way Monserrate does pp. I use the spelling "phantasy" to refer to the mental faculty.

Consequently, scholarship has departed from the issue of artificial memory and turned its attention to memory as a multifarious phenomenon of crucial importance for medieval culture. On the contrary, liturgical and monastic commemoration were at the very heart of culture, and indispensable for social structuring and coherence, and, not the least, the exercise of power.

Carruthers demon- semblanzas strates that Yates's architectonic art of memory is "only one subset of 11 many" "Poet as Masterbuilder She shows that the 13lh-century revival took place in an environment where monastic circles cultivated other sorts of "locational memory.

My fundamental contention in the first part of the following book is that Fernan Perez de Guzman's Generaciones y semblanzas materialize at the intersection of individual memory, mnemotechniques, historiography, "vita memoriae" according to Cicero's famous dictum De oratore II, 36, pp. Patricia E.

A review of the early modern readings of Generaciones y semblanzas The two main aspects of Generaciones which have attracted considerable shows that the text was interpreted and used as a supporting account of interest are: first, the cultural, philosophical, and anthropological outlook, Castilian history under Enrique III and Juan II, as a register of important weltanschauung and menschenbild, which underlie the Generaciones, moti- lords of the time and as a source for aristocratic family history. These ge- vating the author to compose the "biographies" of his contemporaries; and neric and pragmatic aspects and interpretive clues were, by and large, second, the Greco-Roman rhetorical patterns and models which influenced neglected by modern scholarship.

Regarding the weltanschauung that inspired Perez de Guzman, three positions can be distinguished.
