"The history and literature of Spain in the Middle Ages were marked by the extraordinary richness and diversity of the cultural components that coexisted, however uneasily, in the Iberian Peninsula.

Besides the vast devotional literature of the period—the ars moriendi, or books on the art of dying well, the saints’ lives, and manuals of methodical prayer and spiritual consolation—the most popular reading of noble and burgher alike was a 13th-century love allegory, the Roman de la rose.
