These work has been sadly neglected since the thirteenth century. King Alfonso X was knows as “The Wise.”This collection of 420 poems and songs was not written in Castilian but in Catalan- Portuguese, which was an important language in the Middle Ages, but little known today. This is the first English Translation and it unveilsĀ  a colorful panorama of medieval life reflecting a vast array of historical, cultural, linguistic, folklorist, and aesthetic interest and information, and contributes to the verse genre realating Miraculous events attributed to Mary. Still in original wraps.
