    Isabel de Villena: A woman of our time

    This year the Historical Library is commemorating the celebration of Valencian Book Day on November 20th with a virtual cultural activity in collaboration with the Biblioteca Valenciana Nicolau Primitiu.


    The activity will be a collective reading of the work Vita Christi by Isabel de Villena, a key figure in religious literature and the first known writer in Valencian, as well as being a woman ahead of her time.


    Given the limitations of the current health situation, the format will be entirely virtual, by videotaping readings fragments of the work..


    We would like to count on your participation. If you are interested, send us an e-mail to isabeldevillena@uv.es and we will explain how to participate.
