Chapter Summary

This article limits the focus to the period between the end of the 15th century and the beginning of the 17th century; or to be more concrete, between 1515 (the year in which the anonymous medieval Boosco deleitoso was printed) and 1630 (the year of the publication of the Arte de orar by Diogo Monteiro, S.J.). The present article only focuses on individuals who lived in Portugal, whether of Portuguese nationality or of foreign origin, excluding Portuguese authors who lived and produced their works abroad, whatever their significance. This article about traditions, lifestyles and orientations with a brief allusion to a popular painter, Luís Alvares de Andrade (f1631). Educated by Dominicans, including Luis de Granada, this &t;Saintly Painter&t; - who was also the author of Advertencias espirituaes (1625) - was famous for the immense popularity of his panels, which aimed to awaken devotion to the souls of Purgatory throughout the streets and town squares.

Keywords: 15th century; lifestyles; Luís Alvares de Andrade; Luis de Granada; Orientations; Portuguese; Traditions
