Resumé

This volume is devoted to the analysis of the illustrated copies of the legal corpus generated around the Castilian kings in the late Middle Ages: the vernacular translation of the Visigothic Liber Iudiciorum produced at the commission of King Fernando III (Fuero Juzgo) and the revolutionary legal production promoted by King Alfonso X (Fuero Real, Libro del Fuero de las Leyes and the Siete Partidas), as well as its aftermath with the legal enterprise of Kings Alfonso XI (Ordenamiento de Alcalá of 1348) and his son Pedro I (Ordenamiento de Alcalá of 1351). In these works, the task of 'illuminating the Law' -either by visually glossing its contents in actual illustrations or by the consolidation of a specific mise en page able to articulate the text and make the law-giver's voice present- encapsulates a sort of political theory intended to strengthen royal authority over an expanding kingdom and against a powerful nobility.
