Abstract

The comparative analysis of the "Hall of Justice" ceilings and several fourteenth-century Castilian courtly artefacts—above all, the Crónica Troyana de Alfonso XI (escorial, h.i.6)—provides suggestive insights for thinking about the threads of meaning associated with chivalric imagery in medieval Castile and Granada. Moreover, tracing the different modes of "Iberization" of a repertoire of motifs traditionally considered "northern" or "western," in both thematic and formal terms, as they are incorporated into the ethnic and cultural plurality of the Iberian Peninsula will serve as an opportunity for scholarship to re-examine the processes of cultural formation, allowing us to avoid simplistic labels and rigid parameters. Translation as a paradigm for artistic creation can be useful in this task, since it can help us to make sense, not only of the singularity of Hispanic achievements, but also of the tensions perceivable in the Peninsular dynamics of artistic production.
