The Translatio of miracles of the Virgin in the Middle Age. Some remarks on the Cantigas de Santa Maria

The miracles of the Virgin circulated throughout Christian territory in the Middle Ages. First, they had blossomed in latin and later they were translated into the vernacular languages. In french scope the Gautier de Coinci’s Miracles de Nostre Dame has been noted by their literary and artistic superiority. Since the XIX century this french collection has been related to the monumental work of Alfonso X, the Cantigas de Santa Maria, in galician-portuguese.
