Chapter Summary

This index of the book Books in the Catholic World during the Early Modern Period presents a list of names relevant to the discussion on Sources of Christian Tradition in the construction of early Castilian spiritual literature. The publication in 1500 of the Exercitatorio de la vida espiritual by García de Cisneros (printed in Montserrat) and of Carro de dos vidas by the priest Gómez García from Toledo (printed in Seville) was a significant milestone in the development of Spanish spiritual literature. Indeed, inherited spiritual writings had predominated throughout the fifteenth century. The contents of Alonso de Cartagena's text, clearly inspired by Christian tradition and the theological debates around prayer, are not particularly original.

Keywords: Alonso de Cartagena; Castilian spiritual literature; Christian tradition; Spanish
