Luis M. Girón Negrón
Professor of Comparative Literature and Romance Languages and Literatures
Prof. Girón Negrón is the author of Visión Deleytable: Philosophical Rationalism and the Religious Imagination in 15th Century Spain (Leiden: Brill, 2001) and Las Coplas de Yosef: Entre la Biblia y el Midrash en la poesía judeoespañola (Madrid: Gredos, 2006-with Laura Minervini). He also has a forthcoming book entitled El envés de lo inefable: cuatro estudios de literatura mística. His talk derives from materials researched for an annotated edition and study of the 15th century Arragel Bible—an Old Spanish translation and commentary of the Hebrew Bible—which he is preparing in collaboration with two Iberian colleagues and with the generous support of an ACLS Fellowship.
