In this paper we analyze a scene of descensus ad Inferos of the unknown Cantos de la batalla ausonia, a Lepantine epic poem composed by the Portuguese Pedro de Acosta Perestrello at the end of the 16th century. Our purpose is to demonstrate the Virgilian nature of this episode and to observe the extent to which the poet has adapted some literary and moral concepts. With this aim, we take as our starting point the scenes of catabasis of the Odyssey and the Aeneid and we pay attention to the tradi...

In 1580, Francisco de Pedrosa, a Latin Grammar preceptor born in Madrid, finished a Lepantine epic in Guatemala: the unpublished Austriaca siue Naumachia . We analize a Protheus’ prophecy scene based on Georgics book IV. We demonstrate that Pedrosa was inspired by this Vergilian episode and that this influence was driven by one of the main contemporary sources about Lepantine poetry: a book of poems collected by Pietro Gherardi, entitled In foedus et uictoriam contra Turcas iuxta sinum Corinthia...
Au sein du cycle des epopees consacrees a la bataille de Lepante, objet aujourd’hui d’une plus grande attention de la part de la critique, le texte inedit des Cantos de la batalla ausonia du portugais Pedro de Acosta Perestrello est reste toujours dans l’ombre. On etudiera ici, sous l’angle des modeles litteraires classiques et en particulier sous celui de l’influence de Virgile, une scene d’hospitalite contenant un recit interne extraite de cette curieuse epopee. Seront egalement examinees l’in...
En este articulo analizamos una escena de descensus ad Inferos de los desconocidos Cantos de la batalla ausonia, una epopeya lepantina compuesta por el portugues Pedro de Acosta Perestrello a finales del siglo XVI. Nos proponemos demostrar la filiacion virgiliana de este episodio y observar en que medida han sido adaptados por el poeta algunos conceptos literarios y morales. Para ello tomamos como referencia las escenas de catabasis de la Odisea y de la Eneida y prestamos atencion a los elemento...
This article offers an initial approach to Cantos de la batalla ausonia, an unpublished epic poem composed in Castilian by Portuguese poet Pedro de Acosta Perestrello after the Battle of Lepanto (1571). The paper aims to shed light on this elusive figure and his work and, most importantly, to demonstrate the classical nature of the Cantos’ epic structure.

The victory of the Holy League over the Turks in the Battle of Lepanto (1571) had a great influence on the Renaissance literature of Mediterranean Europe. As in the Classics, the boundaries between poetry and rhetoric weakened and blurred, since the poets used in their works certain rhetoric devices in order to denounce and specially to praise the principal actors of this historic event. In this paper we analyze the employment of the literary topic known as “Uberbietung” in Neo-Latin poetry in h...

In 1580, Francisco de Pedrosa finished a large epic poem following the literary tendency motivated by the impact of the Battle of Lepanto in Spanish and Latin poetry. This epic poem, whose title is Austriaca siue Naumachia , is not well-known, as his own author. It was conceived like a new Aeneid offered to Philipp II in order to commemorate one of the most relevant historic events within his reign. In this paper we analyse one of the central concepts in the creation process of this work: the el...
A curious manuscript extant in the National Library of Spain contains a series of texts by Madrilenian poet Francisco de Pedrosa. Among them, we find Austriaca siue Naumachia, an unpublished Lepantine epic poem which has up to the present remained unnoticed by many critics. In this article, we intend, in the first place, to lay the groundwork for a first documented biography of this poet. Secondly, and more importantly, we seek to discuss the problems posed both by Austriaca and the other materi...
