Universo Cantigas is a critical digital edition of the surviving corpus of secular troubadour poetry in Galician-Portuguese. This online edition is the latest instalment of the Glosario da poesía medieval profana galego-portuguesa project (available on this website and at http://glossa.gal) and is supported by the Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness and the Ministry of Science, Innovation and Universities under the Edición crítica dixital das cantigas de amor (ref. FFI2015-63523-P) and Edición crítica dixital das cantigas de amigo (ref. PGC2018-093928-B-I00) projects, respectively.
The aim of Universo Cantigas is to provide comprehensive digital access on a staged basis to all the cantiga poems of the Galician-Portuguese troubadours. The site also offers all the features of an online resource, including continuous updates, unlimited space, scope for additions and expansion, and links to a range of materials related to the editing process that offer valuable insight into the texts.
The first phase of the project (2016-2018) resulted in the publication of an online critical edition of the first section of the ‘general songbook’, consisting mainly of cantigas de amor (texts 1-640). Continuing on from that work, the new phase currently underway (2019-2022) covers the second section of the songbook, in which most of the cantigas de amigo are found (texts 641-1315).
