Title : Le Origini del processo di canonizzazione di Isabella d'Aragona, "Rainha Santa de Portugal," in un atto notarile del 27 luglio 1336 [Isabella of Aragon (d. 1336) earned a reputation for piety and benevolence as queen and dowager queen of Portugal. When the cause for Isabella's canonization was advanced in Rome in the early 17th century, documents from the 14th century were gathered. An additional document is a notarized record of Isabella's miracles dated July 27, 1336. The original cause for canonization may have failed because Isabella, like her paternal kin, favored the Spiritual Franciscans who were opposed to the pope. The appendix presents a notarized document, dated July 27, 1336, about Queen Isabella's sanctity. Title note supplied by Feminae.]
