Imagen y función del Anticristo en algunos textos castellanos del siglo XV
Maria Isabel Toro Pascua
AbstractFrom the early days of the primitive Church and throughout the centuries, the Antichrist’s image went through many changes and embellishments. These new added elements had their origin in different written sources. In the 15 th century this legend had already originated a vast and rich tradition which can be seen in several Castilian apocalyptic texts, particularly influenced by the Arogonese court where this theme had been object of study since the 13 th century. This text is an attempt to show how the former doctrinal aspect of the Antichrist was being replaced by a clearly more practical orientation in the most representative Castilian works, which undoubtedly conditioned its image and the way its figure was presented to the public.
