Resumen
«The ballad may, in fact, also be read -perhaps even more profitably- as a sophisticated appropriation and rewriting of paradigmatic biblical foundational fictions resting at the center of the ideologies sustaining cultural and religious conflict on both sides of the frontier in late medieval Spain -the story of David and Goliath (...) and the struggle between the descendants of the Patriarch Abraham» (p. 166).
