sinopsis

Isabel de Villena (1430-1490) is one of the most
fascinating women of the Spanish middle ages.
Related to the royal family, she became abbess
of the Poor Clare convent, the Santa Trinitat, in
Valencia in 1462, a position she held until her
death in 1490. Her treatise on the religious life,
Vita Christi, was the first book by a woman to be
printed in the kingdom of Aragon.
This is the first full-length survey in English of
Isabel’s life and literary works. The author pays
particular attention to the way in which devotion
to the Virgin Mary is manifested and described
through material culture, on her rich fabrics,
brocades, silks, shoes, and crown. This reflects
the status of Valencia as a centre for trade and
producer of silks and velvets at the time.
