Devoción a los santos y sacralización en el mundo urbano medieval,
a través de las fuentes. El ejemplo de Lleida
This work deals with the study of devotion to the Saints in an urban environment, the city of Lleida (Catalunya), based on its historical reality. The first section provides the little known and preserved until the Islamic invasion of the ancient Ilerda. Since its bishopric was not reinstated, but was attached to Roda de Isábena (Huesca), in the second section we discusse the cult of the Saints in this diocese, on the assumption that after the conquest of the city, this cult was moved to Lleida and the cathedral adopted the liturgical calendar. To prove it we publish a calendar of Roda and two other of the liturgical books from Lleida Cathedral for comparing. The last part is devoted to show the hagiographic development during the late Middle Ages of dedications, devotions and foundations in churches, chapels and altars of the cathedral, and showing the introduction of new devotions as well as new liturgical practices, based also on documentary information, in this case the obituaries.
