Até ao final: a presença dos livros no Convento de Nossa Senhora da Piedade da Caparica

Translated title of the contribution: Until the end: books presence at the Convent of Nossa Senhora da Piedade of Caparica

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

The library in Portuguese Franciscan convents was always considered as an indispensable tool for the friars’ instruction. The books, whose references we present in this article inventoried at the time of its extinction in 1834, belonged to the Convent of Caparica, of the Arrábida Province. A possible reconstitution of the readings in this Franciscan community demonstrates, along almost three centuries, an accumulation of knowledge, representing different spiritual currents, always with the aim to build an update canon of written culture.
