In this essay, I explore the relationship between the exemplary narrative of Ramon Llull’s Libre De Sancta Maria and the concepts of signification and mediation articulated in Llull’s famous Art. In particular, I analyze the narrative implications of Ramon Llull’s attribution to Mary of an active role in the Incarnation: in establishing concordance between the divine and the human, Mary serves as a model for a series of dialectical exempla meant to inspire devotional dialogue among Christians. Finally, I seek to show how Mary’s mediating role in the “recreation” of the world inspires in this text a narrative exploration of the Art’s system of signification, which makes divine knowledge possible and underlies much of Llull’s openly disputational writing.
