Abstract

Scholars have long recognized the importance of the Bible in the work of the noted Spanish conciliarist Juan de Segovia (d. 1458). To date, scholarly interest in Segovia's use of the Bible has focused on his ecclesiological and Islamic writings. This article addresses Segovia's little-known devotional approach to bible reading. It locates this approach, which also includes an intriguing mnemonic component, in its historical context and suggests that this approach provides further evidence of a link between Segovia and the Devotio Moderna.
