Recording: Conferences held at the XVII Festival Celestina (24 & 29/08/2015)

While I am working on a longer post on Martha García’s Dialogismo teológico: Devotio moderna, “Celestina” & “Quijote”, I wanted to share with you two conferences held this summer at the XVII Festival Celestina (La Puebla de Montalbán, 21st-30th August 2015).

Contexto histórico y personajes de la Celestina – Rodolfo de los Reyes y Pedro Velasco (24/08/2015)

La imprenta en la época de la Celestina – Fermín de los Reyes (29/08/2015)

Apparently the conference “Magia y convivencia de las tres culturas en la España de Rojas” by José Carlos Sheni, programmed for the 26th of August, was cancelled and replaced by a cello concert.

Official programme of the XVII Festival Celestina in La Puebla de Montalbán (21st-30th August 2015)

La Puebla de Montalbán Council has finally made available the official programme for the XVII Festival Celestina, to take place from the 21st to the 30th of August 2015. This year’s topic is still “La España de Rojas” and the adherence to Gilman’s views are particularly noticeable in two of the three conferences programmed, all of them to take place at Museo La Celestina: “Contexto histórico y personajes de la Celestina (Rodolfo de los Reyes and Pedro Velasco, 24th of August, 21:00) and “Magia y convivencia de las tres culturas en la España de Rojas” (José Carlos Sheni, 26th of August, 21:00). The remaining conference sounds promising for someone interested on the History of the Book as myself: “La Imprenta en la época de La Celestina” (Fermín de los Reyes, 29th August, 21:00).

Once again I will not be able to take part in the festival, neither as speaker nor as visitor, therefore, I invite you to send me your impressions, were you to attend it.

Official programme of the XVI Festival Celestina in La Puebla de Montalbán (23rd-31st August 2014)

La Puebla de Montalbán Council has finally made available the official programme for the XVI Festival Celestina, to take place from the 23rd to the 31st of August 2014.

Probably, the event of greatest interest is the perfomance of the Tragicomedia de Calixto y Melibea on Saturday night (Plaza Mayor, 22:30), as the conference of this year seems not to be related directly to a celestinesque topic but, according to the specialisation fields of the speakers, to sephardic music and the “converso” background of Fernando de Rojas.
This confirms my previous intuition on this year’s topic “La España de Rojas” being somehow related to Gilman’s The Spain of Fernando de Rojas, although I am not sure yet, if this has been made on purpose or unintentionally.

Official dates for the XVI Festival Celestina in La Puebla de Montalbán

festival_celestina-2014According to the city council official announcement, the XVI Festival Celestina will take place from the 23rd to the 31st of August of 2014, under the main topic of “La España de Rojas”. We ignore if the reference to Gilman’s work is on purpose or just a coincidence, but without a programme yet, there is no way to ascertain it.

Museo La Celestina and Festival Celestina in La Puebla de Montalbán (Toledo)

After the announcement of the purchase of a facsimile of the Burgos edition of the Comedia de Calisto y Melibea by the Museo del Libro Fadrique de Basilea (announcement to which the Diario de Burgos and El Correo de Burgos have apparently devoted more attention than the official site of the museum), I remembered that there is a Museo de La Celestina in la Puebla de Montalbán (Toledo) which, as far as I know, already had a facsimile copy of the Burgos edition and has never made a big fuzz about it. This has lead me to discover that there is an annual Festival Celestina in La Puebla de Montalbán, which this year celebrates its fifteenth edition and takes place from the 23rd August to the 1st September. The programme has not been made public yet, but it looks like a good excuse to visit La Puebla de Montalbán.
