This article starts from a study about the fashion we could observe in the illumination of the manuscript of the Science Academy of Lisbon, known as M.S.A. 1 of the Crónica Geral de Espanha de 1344. We believe that this kind of reproduction reveals us the daily habits of kings, noble men and people, in what concern the dress fashion of a precise time of Portugal’s history, in this case, the fashion habits from the period this manuscript was made. We will use that information to contribute to a more accurate date for the illumination of this manuscript, which is now a controversial question. To give to our conclusions a bigger consistency, we will do a comparison between the fashion in the illumination of M.S.A. 1 and the fashion in the illumination of other international contemporary illuminated manuscripts.
