The «other prince»: piety and charisma of Ferdinand the Catholic in his courtly environment
Mary, Montano Clivera
Classical Bulletin, Special Issue 3, 2018; p.5-17

Abstract
In the shadow of the 5th Centenary of Ferdinand the Catholic (1516-2016), the present work addresses one of the less known facets of his personality, and more representative of his politics: his religiosity. For this we have reconstructed Fernandino's charisma through its religious models, the ideals of perfection, the moral literature and the spiritual currents that formed the learned pietas of its environment. In this framework of ideas and people, the liturgical and devotional activity of the Catholic King is investigated, developed under the impulse of a more internalized piety, especially sensitive to the Passion of Christ, which had unprecedented consequences in the court care activity.

In this framework of ideas and people we analyze the liturgical and devotional activity of the Catholic King, developed under the impulse of a more internalized piety, particular cognizant of the Passion of Christ, which had unprecedented consequences in the court's welfare activity.
