MANZI, Ofelia  y  GRAU-DIECKMANN, Patricia. La reina testigo: Jeanne d'Evreux en su libro de horas. Temas Mediev. [online]. 2004, vol.12, pp.83-95. ISSN 0327-5094.

Among the pictorial documents produced during the lower Middle Ages, some of the most important manifestations are to be found within the genre known as livres d´heures. One of its most interesting examples -not only due to its exceptional artistic level, but also because of its high degree of conservation and its great originality- is the tiny livre d'heures which belonged to Jeanne d'Evreux, king Charles IV's third wife whose responsibility it was to materialize the last chance of survival of the Capetian dynasty. In the manuscript there appear certain historical personalities who may be key to an interpretation. Two pages belonging respectively to the heures of the Virgin and those of St. Louis, containing miniatures which are a sort of an exchange between past and present in which present day history is integrated into the biblical history, illustrate the value of pictures and the many possibilities by which they can convey different meanings.

Palabras clave : Livres d'heures; iconography; Jeanne d´Evreux; pictures, meanings of.
