The Crónica Geral (ca. 1344) is a rare secular illuminated manuscript kept in the Academia das Ciências (Lisbon, Portugal). Conceived by the Portuguese court as a symbol of power it was intentionally projected that way to Spain and to the rest of Europe. Music is represented as an instrument of both strength and erudition. Special attention will be paid to images of women performers within the Iberian soundscape, scrutinizing and contextualizing the role of musical instruments in terms of gender performances.
