Los mitos de la creación de las "Metamorfosis" de Ovidio (Met. I, v. 5-162) en la "General estoria" de Alfonso X

Abstract : This work is the analysis of Ovid's reception in the General estoria in connection with the Latin models: Saint Jerome's Bible, Isidore of Seville's Etymologiae, Eusebius and Jerome's Chronicle, Petrus Comestor's Historia Scholastica, and Godefroi de Viterbe's Pantheon. All these works quote Ovid at the same parts as the General estoria. The study only deals with Creation myths corresponding to the Christian Genesis. The Alfonsine version of these myths is in deep debt to its models, since the latter legitimise the Latin poet's use for these specific contents. However, the Castilian reception is original, mainly because of its extraordinary literality, the length of the translated fragments and the place it occupies in the story of the world creation.
