Chapter Summary

This section presents a list of terms and concepts that occur in this book titled The serpent and the rose : the Immaculate Conception and Hispanic poetry in the late medieval period. Given that few critical studies have given attention to understanding the Immaculate Conception, it is hardly surprising that the fascinating difference between the way the doctrine was treated in literature in the neighbouring kingdoms of Castile and Aragon has never been explored. The present study seeks to partially remedy that omission, providing a study of literature, art, and liturgy. The book will provide a comparative study of the most important poetic texts about Mary in Hispanic literature using understanding gained in dedicated immaculist literature to aid understanding of the same themes in poems which do not declare support for it.

Keywords: Aragon; Hispanic poetry; Immaculate Conception; immaculist literature; serpent
