Poesia, ritual i cant per a la festa: l'univers creatiu i festiu dels poemes de vesticions i professions al convent de carmelites descalces de Barcelona (segle XVII) = Poetry, ritual and chant for celebrations: the creative and festive universe of the poems of vesticions and professions in the convent of Discalced Carmelites of Barcelona (17th century)

In this essay we address one of the most important poetic subgenres in the tradition of Carmelite women: the works composed for ceremonies of vestition and solemn profession in which the nuns left behind his mundane life and opened a new life as the wife of Jesus. First of all, we provide a general overview of the customs and functions of the poetry in the Discalced Carmelites, which has been already analysed in the context of the Hispanic literature, but rarely from the perspective of the Catalan area. Secondly, we present and contextualize a corpus of twenty-five unpublished compositions on vestitions and professions, copied in the manuscript of the Discalced Carmelites of Barcelona ​
