Investigadores canarios estudian los viajes africanos de Alvise Cadamosto

Los viajes africanos de Alvise Cadamosto.

Aznar, Corbella y Tejera repasan su figura, con Luis Miguel Duarte como invitado.

El Instituto de Estudios Canarios (IECan) presenta “Los viajes africanos de Alvise Cadamosto (1455-1456)”, cuya edición corre a cargo de los profesores Eduardo Aznar, Dolores Corbella y Antonio Tejera, el próximo miércoles 20 de diciembre a las 20:00 horas en la lagunera Casa de Ossuna. Luis Miguel Duarte, catedrático de Historia Medieval de la Universidad de Oporto, será el encargado de presentar la obra editada por los doctores canarios.

El análisis de los viajes africanos de Cadamosto es el resultado del arduo trabajo realizado por los doctores y miembros del Instituto de Estudios Canarios, Eduardo Aznar, Dolores Corbella y Antonio Tejera (adscritos a la Universidad de La Laguna).

Esta publicación supone el número 50 (L) dentro de la Colección Fontes Rerum Canariarum, la más antigua del IECan, que persigue rescatar, editar y preservar documentos esenciales para la historia de Canarias. Prestigiosas obras como “Le Canarien: crónicas franceses de los viajeros de Canarias”, la “Conquista de la isla de Gran Canaria”, o los “Acuerdos del Cabildo de Tenerife”, entre otras, se enmarcan dentro de la misma antología. Todas ellas están disponibles en la Biblioteca Virtual Viera y Clavijo, un ambicioso proyecto de digitalización, llevado a cabo por el IECan con el apoyo de diversas instituciones públicas del archipiélago.

Alvise Cadamosto (1432-1483) fue un reconocido navegante y explorador veneciano responsable, junto a su tripulación, del descubrimiento del archipiélago de Cabo Verde, al calor de las exploraciones realizadas a las órdenes de la corona portuguesa. Durante sus largos viajes el explorador redactó extensos relatos de viaje y descripciones de las costumbres del continente africano. Sus textos son considerados de gran valía por los historiadores ya que configuran una muy valiosa fuente de información la sociedad de África occidental de la segunda mitad del siglo XV. Además, para el caso canario su relato es muy importante, ya que describió con suma precisión el estado de las islas Canarias en esos momentos.

Con esta edición el IECan continúa la senda comenzada en 1933 con la publicación de “Conquista de Gran Canaria”, primera de la Colección Fontes Rerum Canariarum, creada con el objetivo de facilitar el acceso de los investigadores y público en general a las fuentes directas para el conocimiento del pasado del archipiélago. Esta labor se ha visto actualizada a los nuevos tiempos con la publicación, en línea y gratuita, de la mayor parte de los números de la colección en la Biblioteca Viera Virtual.
