Abstract

This article is about the legal norms set forth by the Portuguese authorities to regulate the construction of ovens, particularly, bread ovens. These norms were aimed at preventing their structure causing harm to the neighborhood. The analysis of the aforementioned norms allows us to witness a socio-environmental change that took place during the transition from the Middle Ages to Modern Times in Portugal: the air pollution became part of the public health agenda.

Este artículo trata de las normas jurídicas establecidas por las autoridades portuguesas para regular la construcción de hornos, en particular los hornos de pan. Su objetivo era impedir que estas estructuras causasen daños a la vecindad. El análisis de estas normas jurídicas permite presenciar un cambio socio-ambiental ocurrido en Portugal durante la transición de la Edad Media a la Edad Moderna: la polución del aire pasó a formar parte de los problemas de salubridad pública.
