Chapter Summary

The comparative analysis of the ?Hall of Justice? ceilings and several fourteenth-century Castilian courtly artefacts?above all, the Cronica Troyana de Alfonso XI 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. Stereotypes (such as the Muslim killing the Christian on the Hall of Justice ceilings) coined on both sides of Castilian?Grenadine frontier are consistently present among the shared topoi that comprise the visual realm of the Iberian courtly interculture.

Keywords: Castilian; chivalric imagery; Christian; Granada; Grenadine frontier; Hall of Justice; medieval Castile
