Abstract

This article questions some existing ideas about the legend of the blasphemy of Alfonso X, especially concerning this narrative’s presence in the Portuguese chronicle of 1344, written by Pedro Afonso de Barcelos, great-grandson of the Learned King. The consideration of a often overlooked fact, the absence of this story in the truncated manuscript that conveys the fi rst version of the Portuguese count’s work, stimulates a new hypothesis, based on refl exions on not only on textual, but also on contextual issues (of both personal and political kind).
