RAMON LLULL YEAR 2016 CULTURAL PROJECT

Member of the coordination team of the Llull Year’s International Cultural Programme promoted by Institut Ramon Llull in 2016 to commemorate the 700th anniversary of the death of the writer and thinker, Ramon Llull. The initiative programmed nearly 300 activities, including exhibitions (The Ineffable Truth. The Book of the Lover and the Beloved by Ramon Llull), readings, conferences, concerts, academic and educational projects. Of the total activities programmed in the Llull Year, 160 were held in Catalonia, 40 in the Balearic Islands, 10 in Spain, and 72 in other countries like France, Germany, UK, Ireland, Italy, Portugal, Israel, Mexico, Algeria or Tunis.

Ramon Llull is one of the most outstanding writers and thinkers of the Middle Ages, not only in the Catalan-speaking territories, but also in the European tradition as a whole. His many interests enabled him to make remarkable contributions in all areas of knowledge in his day, ranging from philosophy and theology to law, medicine, astronomy, rhetoric and logic. At the same time, he produced a solid body of literature, just at the beginning of the Catalan literary tradition, which includes such emblematic titles as The Book of the Gentile and the Three Wise Men, Blanquerna, The Book of the Lover and the Beloved, The Book of Wonders, The Book of the Beasts and The Tree of Knowledge.
