Las miniaturas de los libros de coro de la Catedral de Sevilla: el siglo XVI

Rosario Marchena Hidalgo

Rosario Marchena Hidalgo addresses the miniature paintings in the books used by clergy in the choir of the Cathedral of Seville. This study focuses on 16th century choir books, which include outstanding drawings by Alejo Fernández, Andrés Gutiérrez, Pedro de Palma, Andrés Ramírez or Diego Dorta, among others. Numerous choir books were made in these Renaissance years for the Cathedral, due to economic growth in the city as well as a reply to austerity promoted by Protestantism.
