L’humanista Bernardí Gómez Miedes (1515-1589) i la percepció de la llengua catalana / The humanist Bernardí Gómez Miedes (1515-1589) and the perception of Catalan language
The Valencian humanist Bernardino Gómez Miedes (1515–1589) was born in Aragon, trained in Rome and near the end of his life appointed Bishop of Albarracin. He gave the Spanish monarchy paraphrases of the Chronicle of Jaume I, first in Latin (1582) and then in Castilian (1584). His interest was clear: to reinforce the political theory, featuring the model of the medieval king, of Caesarism as practiced by the Hapsburgs. Interestingly, Gomez Miedes did not refrain from including juicy comments, analyzed in this paper, about the Crown of Aragon and, in particular, the Catalans.
