Abstract

El presente estudio pretende traer para el debate diversos temas relacionados con las obras (arquitectura y ornamentos) realizados en los siglos XIII y XIV en la Catedral de Évora, bajo el mecenazgo de algunos obispos. A partir de una bibliografía ya extensa, con estudios basados en la documentación escrita, así como en las comparaciones estilísticas entre este edificio y otros que existen dentro y fuera de las fronteras portuguesas, considero que todavía hay temas que carecen de mayor cuestionamiento y revisión de las posiciones. Me motivaron, en especial, los sepulcros de los obispos constructores (y de otros), y de cómo la Catedral de Évora representa un núcleo de escultura sepulcral con particularidades especiales en el conjunto de los enterramientos de los obispos portugueses en la Edad Media.

The present study intends to bring to the debate various themes related to the works (architecture and ornaments) carried out in the thirteenth and fourteenth centuries in the Cathedral of Évora, under the patronage of some bishops. From an already extensive bibliography, with studies based on written documentation, as well as on the stylistic comparisons between this building and others that exist inside and outside the Portuguese borders, I consider that there are still subjects that lack further questioning and revision of positions. I was especially motivated by the tombs of the bishop-builders (and others), and of how Cathedral of Évora represents a nucleus of tomb sculpture with special features in the whole of the burials of the Portuguese bishops in the Middle Ages.
