Alcipe e os salmos
AbstractThe paraphrase of the Psalms by D. Leonor de Almeida Portugal, who adopted the pseudonym Alcipe (or Alcippe), is part of the movement which showed particular interest in the Bible in the second half of the 18th century. The available documentation allows us to conclude that this work resulted from an enduring familiarity with the Psalter and from a project developed in several stages during at least two decades. An analysis of the three editions of her Paraphrase, published in 1817, 1833 and 1844, sheds light on Alcipe’s strategies as a writer and a woman of letters.
