“Aljamiado Reading Course” par N. Martínez-de-Castilla, oct.-nov. 2014, Warburg Institute (Londres).
New Aljamiado Reading Course at the Warburg Institute,
by Nuria Martínez-de-Castilla (UCM/Warburg Institute).
We will be meeting on Mondays from 4.15 to 7.10 pm, from 13 October until 3 November 2014, at the Warburg Institute (London) in the Room 1. Participation is free.
Within its historical and cultural context, we will learn to read the Aljamiado texts, which are manuscripts copied by the Moriscos in the 16th-17th century and written in Spanish in Arabic script. To better understand these texts, we will look at some aspects of codicology.
A basic reading knowledge of Spanish is required, as well as a basic knowledge of Arabic script.
