The thirteenth-century Latin treatise De doctrina cordis (The Doctrine of the Hert) was translated into Spanish as Del enseñamiento del coraçon. Published in Salamanca in 1498, the Spanish version survives in three manuscripts, all in the Iberian peninsula: El Escorial, 31-V–49 (2o); and Lisbon, Biblioteca Nacional, Res. Inc. 502 and 503. A revised edition with modernised text, Doctrina cordis de sant buena ventura en romance: nueuamente corregido y enmendado (Toledo, 1510), has been attributed to St Bonaventure by Juan Varela de Salamanca, and survives in three copies: London, British Library, C 63 c 16; Madrid, Biblioteca Nacional, R–31600; Zaragoza, Biblioteca Universitaria, A.30.251; and New York, Hispanic Society. There is also a printed edition from the southern town of Baeza in 1551, Doctrina cordis del serafico dotor sant buena ventura en romance: muy util y provechoso para todos los fieles christianos: nuevamente corregido y emendado). This chapter examines the nature and purpose of the Spanish translation of De doctrina cordis, its printing history and actual readership, and the translator's linguistic and cultural preferences.
