This book contains an edited and contextualized collection of poetry that is preserved, without an author's name, in a manuscript in the Vatican Apostolic Library. The internal and external analysis of the manuscript has made it possible to attribute it to Joan Salom (or Salon), a Franciscan monk who, in addition to being a noted hebraist and astronomer, had an important role in reforming the Gregorian calendar, and who is here also revealed as a poet. Beyond the interest of adding previously unknown lyrics to the Catalan literary production of the 1500s, this songbook is important because it is situated at the time when the new Italian poetic forms of the Renaissance were being introduced in Catalan poetry.

Aquest llibre edita i contextualitza un petit recull de poesies que avui es conserva, sense nom d’autor, dins un manuscrit de la Biblioteca Apostòlica Vaticana. L’anàlisi interna i externa del manuscrit ha permès atribuir-lo amb tota seguretat a Joan Salom (o Salon), un frare franciscà que, a més d’hebraista i astrònom reconegut –va tenir un paper important en la reforma del calendari gregorià–, se’ns revela, doncs, també com a poeta. A les composicions hi ha elogis a alguns contemporanis, algunes peces de caràcter devot i unes quantes poesies adreçades a un amor frustrat envers una monja barcelonina. Més enllà de l’interès que té augmentar la producció literària catalana del Cinc-cents amb uns textos desconeguts, aquest cançoner és important perquè se situa en el moment en què les noves formes poètiques italianes del renaixement s’introdueixen en la poesia catalana.

Table of Contents
“The recovery of this Cançoner constitutes a highly valuable and significant new element. It shows a hitherto unknown side of Late Catalan Renaissance.”
“This is a manuscript which had so far gone unnoticed for researchers and scholars specialised in the history of Catalan literature. The rigour applied both to the study and to the transcription of Salom’s poems prepared by Rossich, Valsalobre and Martines are impeccable.”
“This book is a remarkable contribution to the study of a sixteenth-century Catalan poet and his authorial songbook. By making available a noteworthy piece of evidence into a writer’s creative process, this edition opens up an avenue for filologia d’autore studies of early modern Catalan texts.”
