THE ALFONSO BIBLE

image7

King Alfonso X of Castile   (1221-1284) commissioned the earliest known translation of the scriptures into the Spanish tongue, with an entire Old Testament produced in 1240 A.D (others   say 1280).  This version today is known  as "The Alfonsine Bible."  It holds the honor of being the first translation made into a European Romance language, and was done by the School of Toledo as part of   the King's mandate of ""Grande e General Estoria" in which he   commanded the translation of many works into the language of the people. King Alfonso was also known as "The Wise King" for his love of studying. His library consisted of over 30,000 books, many of which he made   available for all to read. 

Although the Old Testament of his work used the Hebrew   texts in its translation, it also followed many readings from the corrupt   Roman Catholic Latin Vulgate, (the bible that Cassiodoro de Reina called  "full of errors"). It also   did not see much publication, as King John I of Aragon, in 1233, prohibited vernacular versions of the Scripture, and ordered any such work to be burned.   Thus, the Alfonsine Bible was not widely distributed in Spanish, and was eventually   locked up in the Royal Library for countless centuries, unviewed and   unavailable to the common man.     

So, although it is technically the very first entire Spanish translation, it was not easily obtained and read by the masses.  In fact, very few have ever seen a copy of it today.  Another thing about the King Alfonso Bible is the many colorful drawings, which was common of medieval texts. 

LA BIBLIA ALFONSINA

image8

El rey Alfonso X de Castilla (1221-1284) encargó lo que hoy sabemos como la más antigua traduccion de las Escrituras al español , con un Antiguo Testamento completo producido en 1240 d.C. (otros dicen 1280). Esta versión hoy se conoce como "La Biblia Alfonsina".  Tiene el honor de ser la primera traducción en Europa hecha a una idioma romanceada, y fue realizada por la Escuela de Toledo como parte del mandato del Rey de "Grande e General Estoria" en el que ordenó la traducción de muchas obras al idioma de la gente. El rey Alfonso también era conocido como "El Rey SAbio" por su amor del estudio. Su biblioteca consistía de más de 30.000 libros, muchos de los cuales estában disponibles para que todos lo leyeran.

Aunque el Antiguo Testamento de su obra utilizó los textos hebreos en su traducción, también siguió muchas lecturas de la corrupta Vulgata Latina Católica Romana (la biblia que Casiodoro de Reina llamó "lleno de errores"). Tampoco vio mucha publicación, mientras que el Rey Juan I de Aragón, en 1233, prohibió las versiones vernáculas de lsa Escrituras y ordenó que se quemara cualquier trabajo de este tipo.  Por lo tanto, la Biblia de Alfonso no se distribuyó ampliamente en español, y finalmente fue encerrada en la Biblioteca Real durante incontables siglos, sin ser vista, ni disponible para el hombre común.

Entonces, aunque técnicamente es la primera traducción completa al español, no había mucha posibilidad en facílmente obtenerla y leerla . Además, muy pocos han visto una copia hoy.  Otra cosa sobre la Biblia del Rey Alfonso son los muchos dibujos coloridos, que eran comunes en los textos medievales.
