  • The Liturgy is a series of rituals performed in the church with the purpose of communing with God. At a time when men and women understood the world and their lives' experiences through the reading, listening and contemplating of the Scriptures, the liturgical calendar and Hours would have certainly guided their daily prayers. Many writers in the clerical and secular realms found a source of inspiration in the bible. Leonor López de Córdoba was not an exception and she impregnated her Memorias with liturgical undertones. This essay studies the juxtaposition of the suffering of Job with Mary's interceding role before God present in the backdrop of her autobiography. The allusion to the aforementioned biblical characters in the text acts as a rhetoric device that looks to convince her audience of her family's honorable character as well as her own.
