Ariosto, los Reyes Católicos y la <i>Monarchia Christianorum</i> carolina

By Guillermo Serés


In the third version of <i>Orlando furioso</i>, Ariosto adds a few lines to highlight the good relations that existed between Spain and Italy. It is a providentialist-style text which extols Charles V as the successor of Augustus and the creator of a kind of «pax Hispana» which linked the Old World with the New. I interpret this in the light of an exhibition by Luis Vives on the Golden Age which was based on a text by Virgil, and I compare this with some of the Italian humanist historians, who do not share the uniformitarianism that exists in most of the Spanish chronicles.<br><br>En la tercera redacción del <i>Orlando furioso</i>, Ariosto añade unos versos para dejar constancia de las buenas relaciones hispano-italianas. Es un texto de tipo providencialista en que se ensalza a Carlos V como sucesor de Augusto y autor de una especie de «pax Hispana», que vincula el viejo con el nuevo mundo. Lo interpreto a la luz de una exposición de Luis Vives sobre la Edad de Oro, a partir, a su vez, de un texto de Virgilio, y lo comparo con algunos historiadores del humanismo italiano, que no comparten aquel uniformismo que preside la mayor parte de crónicas españolas
