Sonia Maura Barillari

Abstract


The central nucleus of one of the excerpta of the Legenda mirabilis, translated from Arabic into Latin by Alphonsus Bonihominis around the middle of the fourteenth century, has correspon - dences with other texts roughly contemporary but of different geographical origin, namely Purgatorio di Ludovico di Francia (or di Sur), Visiones Georgii, and Huon d’Auvergne. All of these texts transmit the ‘royal goddess’ motif, present in varying forms in Celtic culture and ‘turned’ in a demonic key. The royal goddess, possessor of sovereignty, is capable of bestowing it to those she loves.
