Author: Snow, Joseph T.
Title: Alfonso X retratado en las Cantigas de Santa Maria
Date: 1998
Publication details: Concentus Libri (Madrid), no. 4 (April 1998): 82-86. Illustrated.
Snow ID: 1506
Commentary: Snow 2007: "The motivation for Alfonso's long-term Cantigas project is intimately related to Alfonso's own quest for salvation. Not only are many texts centered on Alfonso and his family and court, but Alfonso's portraits in the miniatures of T and F help reveal to what extent the intertwined roles of king, troubadour, and sinner are key to our understanding of the literary and pictorial realization of his spiritual quest."
