The 13th and 14th centuries saw a remarkable cultural flowering under Alfonso X and the appearance of Spain's first important literary achievements. In this program, leading scholars compare and contrast the writings of the masters of the late Middle Ages, whose works gave rise to some of Spain's most memorable heroes. Dramatic readings include excerpts from the anonymously written Cantar de Mio Cid, Alfonso el Sabio's Cantigas de Santa Maria and Siete Partidas, Gonzalo de Berceo's Milagros de Nuestra Senora, Rabbi Sem Tob's Proverbios Morales, and Juan Manuel's El Libro de los Estados and El Conde Lucanor.
