Una aproximación a la censura inquisitorial de la hagiografía en lengua vulgar: del Índice de Valdés (1559) al Índice de Zapata (1632)

Abstract : This paper offers a glimpse into the main reasons behind the inquisitorial censorship of the vernacular hagiography during the CounterReformation, from the second half of the 16th Century to the first third of the 17th. This research focuses on the hagiographic works included in the Hispanic Indexes of forbidden and expurgated books published in the 16th and 17th Centuries: the catalogues of Valdés (1559), Quiroga (1583-1584), Sandoval (1612) and Zapata (1632). The first aim of this article is to define the issues that were considered disputable. The second goal is to account for the gradual transformation of the censorial focus: from the suspicion about devotional and mystical works to the re-reading of the hagiography of medieval origins through a Tridentine lens and the control of the new devotional literature, in particular of the biographies designed to promote canonization.
