Abstract

This book presents the semidiplomatic and interpretive issues of the most extensive work which houses the codex 142 of the Arquivo Distrital de Braga, corresponding to its second part, which starts calling itself Remedios varios, e Receitas Approvadas, but also includes, for the end, a copy of the well known and ancient calendaries, or fastos, distributing for each month of the year the recommendations about what to do for the maintenance of the good health, on the one hand, and about the agriculture of each month, of the other, and yet a long line of Several Secrets, with domestic revenues and advice, culinary, agricultural, veterinary, botanical, technic, and even magic and religious (healing prayers, etc.). Conceived as a treaty, it shows the collection of numerous natural remedies, from antiquity to the seventeenth century, mostly dependent on herbs, medicinal plants and trees, available to any person, and even more exotic products such as spices, or swallow nests, that the Discoveries put within reach of Europe by the Portuguese, originating both in Asia and in Africa or in Brazil. Organized by disease or also either by body parts, medicinal herbs and other ingredients, the manuscript highlights a prevalently preventive medicine and is not limited reductively to therapeutic medicine. In all the codex, and in many of the remedies, diet is key, and this is not a restrictive diet for patients, but of very specific and abundant dietary recommendations to maintain health in a much more timely and holistic perspective. The reader may find constant and rich cross-references between this part II of Codex 142 of remedies, the first part, of cooking recipes, already edited, and the third, about agriculture, with valuable and unique recipes and recommendations from de fields of agriculture, pecuary, veterinary and ecological animal husbandry. Despite the specificity of each part, the information, thorough and from a knowledgeable hand, reveals itself through the three notebooks repeated under different facets, complementary, forming an essential triptych to life: nourishment, health, agricultural and veterinary activity in perfect balance with nature and man.

Abstract

Born in 1883 – the same year that ‘Thus Spoke Zarathustra’ was published and German composer, Richard Wagner, passed away –, journalist and diplomat, Augusto de Castro, would come across ‘delightful ironies’ in life, as he claimed later on. Thus, while Zarathustra belonged to one of Benito Mussolini’s favourite authors – an Italian dictator, also born in 1883, openly admired by Castro throughout the first decades of the 20th century –, the disappearance of Parsifal’s creator set the theme for one of the most nostalgic articles written by Augusto de Castro, which provided the title to his second-last work, ‘Eighty-three years ago in Venice’ (1966). This book suggests a journey through the life and works of Augusto de Castro, a larger-than-life character of 20th-century diplomacy, politics, and culture, who closely followed the main changes that took place in this country, and communed with the main political, economic, and cultural actors of the national and international scene of the time.

Abstract

This thesis aims to contribute to the geomorphological and geo-ecological knowledge of the Schist Mountains in the western sector of the Portuguese Central Range. This second part, the current one, focuses on the role played by man, as the main responsible agent for the evolution of the slopes over the last millennium, in which the construction of agricultural fields is emphasized. The first part of this research deals with the geomorphological analysis and is developed in three chapters: the morpho-structural framework, the landforms and the alluvial deposits, respectively. The second part, centred in the quantification of processes, is more focused on the environment and shows more geo-ecological concerns. It corresponds to chapters fourth and fifth; the former is dedicated to the hydro-climatology, which is the main agent of the morphogenesis and of the recent and current evolution of the slopes , whilst the latter addresses the human intervention and the ecosystems changes.

Abstract

This work consists of the transcription, analysis and interpretation of two unpublished eighteenth-century conventual recipes, which were compared with other counterparts in near periods, produced within the same scope and among the laity. The course undertaken aimed at assessing the real or imaginary originality of the recipes prepared in religious houses of the Modern Age and permitted to answer several questions, namely: the extent to which the conventual recipes were created in this scope or were taken to the monasteries by nuns, friars, monastic nuns, monks, maids and servants? Since the ingredients and cooking techniques used in religious houses were known in the places where lay people were, especially among confectioners, whose regiments were clear about the requirements to obtain letter, how can we explain the frenzy, often excessive, the conventual designation applied to so many and so frenetic recipes? In fact monks, monastic nuns, nuns, friars, maids and servants had time to cook and it is possible that many, or at least some, appreciated the preparation of savoury dishes and especially sweets. However, wasn’t the offer and commerce of sweets the most responsible for the exaltation of the conventual designation, in the absence of pastries taking place in the 17th and 18th centuries, and confectioneries whose fame would spread out to the Kingdom? Are we dealing with the creation of truly conventual sweets or sheer preparations of recipes originally produced in the kitchens of big houses and subsequently taken to the monasteries, such as so many other meat and fish recipes? The analysis and the interpretation of the sources made very clear that the overwhelming majority of the recipes prepared in religious houses was hardly original, we just have to compare these recipes with those circulating both handwritten and printed in other recipe books of the time. On the other hand, the alleged secrecy that should involve the aforementioned conventual recipes - and this is evident in some female recipe books - was broken, in such a manner that lay cookbooks include recipes with names of some religious houses, which does not necessarily mean these recipes have originated there but that they were prepared successfully there and the subject of appreciation by those who had the opportunity to taste them.
