Title: Achegas ao estudo da influência da Arbor Vitae e da Apocalypsis Nova no século XVI em Portugal
Publisher: Porto : Universidade do Porto. Faculdade de Letras
Issue Date: 1994
Abstract: The Arbor Vitae Crucifixae by Ubertino da Casale has played an important role in Portuguese spirituality, both among the Franciscans and through its influence on different works concerning the contemplation of the Passion of Christ. The first general Franciscan chronicle, Cronica da Ordem dos Frades Menores (1557-1562) by the Franciscan Marcos de Lisboa – especially in its prologue –, retrieves, summarizing and adaptating, sometimes in a literal way, many pages from the book V, Ubertino’s Work, as we try to show throught the comparision of some texts. On the other hand, beyond the debt of other authors towards the Arbor as a source of the contemplation of the Passion of Christ in the 16th and 17th centuries, the work may contribute to a better understanding of some aspects of the DE Aetatibus Mundi by the Portuguese painter Francisco de Olanda. The Apocalypsis Nova is believed to have been written by the Portuguese Amadeu da Silva. There is evidence of its influence during the second half of the 16 th century in Portugal. It also seems to have determined the diffusion of some prophecies about Papa Angelicus and the final defeat of the Turkish, nomely the Desengano de Perdidos (1573) by Gaspar de Leão, first archbishop of Goa.
