Yes, it’s that time of year again, and we at Magnificat CLM are very pleased to announce that our sixth issue, for 2019, is out!
Magnificat Cultura i Literatura Medievals is a broad-based, open-access, non-APC yearbook, ranging from cultural and philological subjects (especially of the Romance area) to digital methodologies:
Our journal’s traffic has raised up most notably: in 2019 we have received 7,670 visits, with 3,161 downloads. You can check them on our Goggle Analytics page:
In this year’s issue you’ll find five collaborations.
The first one is by Thomas Capuano, who repeats with another contribution, as did before him Roger Boase, Annamaria Annicchiarico and Francesc-Josep Gómez. It is an encouraging show of trust that our authors want to repeat with Magnificat CLM. This time Tom contributes the critial edition and translation of a horticultural text most favoured for centuries.
The second is by Marta Marfany, a specialist in medieval literatures in contact, who edits and studies, with her characteristic attention, the Catalan lai included in the Castilian Triste deleitación.
The third collaboration, by history of science specialists Carmel Ferragud and Sebastià Giralt, is a detailed biographical study, with transcription and document systematization, on astrologer-physicist Bartomeu de Tresbens, who came to attend Aragon’s royal family.
Josep Lluís Martos offers us one of his detailed characterizations of medieval witnesses of Catalan poetry; this one on incunabulum b2/87FD.
Finally, Wendy Pfeffer presents a cultural study on how Toulouse inhabitants reelaborated and storyfied their troubadour past, including the curious invention of a lady Clémence Ysaure.

A very happy holiday to you all.
