An Introduction to the "Sendebar".
My lessons want to introduce to the study of medieval ‘via’ the direct experience of one text, that we shall read in its manuscript form. This year lessons concern the “Sendebar”: a translation from an arab collection of “exempla”.
Lessons offer a critical lecture of the “Sendebar” and the experience of a direct approach to an Old Spanish text directly in its manuscript form, and an introduction to study of Old Spanish language.
