Archaeological evidences of the mill game in Southern Italy https://revistes.ub.edu/index.php/SVMMA/article/view/37579 <p>Of ancient origins, mill game mainly underwent a noticeable development in Medieval Europe. Thanks to its persistence and success during the centuries, this game can be considered the forerunner of many modern pastimes. The popularity of mill game can be founded in the abundance of material evidences referring to the game that were discovered over the past decades in European cities contexts and sites of various typology. There appears to be no doubt regarding its use as a pastime and as a recreational moment typical of different social classes and categories, even though the majority of the existing pictorial representations depicts higher classes members playing the mill game. Proven evidence are the numerous artifacts referred to the mill game in Southern Italy castles, particularly in the towers of Campania region inland settlements, whose recent findings will be displayed in this essay.</p> Lester Lonardo Copyright (c) 2021 SVMMA. Revista de Cultures Medievals https://revistes.ub.edu/index.php/SVMMA/article/view/37579 Tue, 21 Dec 2021 00:00:00 +0000 The name of the architect of the church of Saint-Michel-de-Cuxa consagrated in 975 https://revistes.ub.edu/index.php/SVMMA/article/view/37580 <p>The Saint Hilary of Carcassonne relic’s translation was explained in a text written in the year 978.&nbsp; This narration, from which I have recently published a new edition, mentions a master builder that played a key role in the relic’s discovery. The master was brought by Garin, the abbot of the Saint-Miquel-de-Cuixa monastery, and he was supposed to be the architect who built the second church of Saint-Miquel-de-Cuixa. The count Sunifred and the abbot Ponce had initiated this rebuilding in the year 956 and on 28th September 975 Garin finished it. After the research on the manuscript copy and the various editions from the second half of the 17th century, some of them edited directly from the currently lost original one, it is concluded that the name of the architect was Ledo (<em>Letus</em>). Knowing the name of an architect who lived before the 11th century is, undoubtedly, a unique event, even more when this architect is considered as a virtuous man.</p> Mercè Puig Rodríguez-Escalona Copyright (c) 2021 SVMMA.

In one of its sections, the text traces a magnificent cameo describing the interior of the sanctuary and provides a fascinating account of the saint’s hagiographic tradition. This speech is therefore the starting point for the cult of the Anatolian saint spreading in the East, and later the West.</p> Mattia C. Chiriatti Copyright (c) 2021 SVMMA.

The aim of this article is to analyze this controversy in the final polemical work written by Arnald – in other words, the unpublished&nbsp;<em class="yiv3217868586">Antidotum contra venenum effusum per fratrem Martinum de Atheca</em>. Both Arnald and his opponent Martin of Ateca found supporting arguments for their own positions within Augustine’s oeuvre, yet underlying this controversy was a further question: Under what authority did Arnald of Villanova issue his prediction? If this prediction was ther outcome of a revelation, as the Catalan thinker contended, the Augustinian texts would seem to come down on Master Arnald’s side; if it consisted in mere speculation on Arnald’s part, however, as Martin of Ateca claimed, Augustine of Hippo had already ruled out any attempt of this kind.</p> Jaume Mensa i Valls Copyright (c) 2021 SVMMA.

It is about an annual donation of twelve <em>sous</em> that the Jewish council of Lleida gave indefinitely to the brotherhood to pay an emphyteutic lease of the same quantity, this was to maintain some houses used by the hospital. The document discovers the existence of this hospital and also gives information about the internal organization of the Jewish community, among others: the number of managers, their families and the rental of the taxes.</p> Guillem Roca Cabau Copyright (c) 2021 SVMMA.
