DESEJOS PIEDOSOS: EMBLEMAS PARA LA FORMACIÓN DEVOCIONAL EN LA AZULEJERÍA RELIGIOSA PORTUGUESA DE LA PRIMERA MITAD DEL SIGLO XVIII

Resumo

Desde hace ya varias décadas, y en especial a partir de los años 90 del pasado siglo, vamos teniendo un conocimiento cada vez más amplio de la existencia en Portugal de diversos programas iconográficos sobre paneles de azulejos en azul cobalto sobre blanco, realizados fundamentalmente durante las primeras décadas del siglo XVIII, cuyas composiciones se inspiran de forma directa en libros de emblemas de orientación devocional y doctrinal publicados durante la centuria anterior. Algunos de ellos (al menos cinco programas conocidos hasta la fecha) proceden de las obras más populares e influyentes del género como son la Schola cordis y la Regia via crucis de Benedictus van Haeften (editadas por primera vez, respectivamente, en Amberes, Hieronymus Verdussen, 1629 y Amberes, Officina Plantiniana/Balthasar Moretus, 1635), o los Pia desideria del padre jesuita Hermann Hugo (editio princeps: Amberes, Henricus Aertsenius, 1624), libros que gozaron de numerosas ediciones posteriores y traducciones a varios idiomas.

Entre estos programas cerámicos se encuentran los paneles seriados, hoy reinstalados en los zócalos de las galerías superiores del claustro del convento da Madre de Deus-Museu Nacional do Azulejo de Lisboa, basados en las mencionadas obras de van Haeften, y procedentes del desaparecido convento de religiosos agustinos dos Grilos. También composiciones emblemáticas procedentes de ambos autores pueden contemplarse en los azulejos de la sacristía del convento de Santo António do Varatojo (Torres Vedras). A ellos deben sumarse sendos programas conservados en la Casa da Irmandade de la iglesia de la Santa Cruz de Santarem y la Casa do Capítulo del convento de Santa Marta de Lisboa, a partir en este caso de grabados de los Pia desideria. El repertorio se cierra, por el momento, con otra serie localizada por la profesora Reyes Escalera Pérez, que se ubica en el revestimiento de cuatro tramos de los muros laterales, entre las capillas, de la  iglesia parroquial de São Tiago – catedral de Beja, también inspirada en determinadas estampas de los Pia desideria.

Todos estos programas responden a una tendencia que se generalizó en especial en el área central de Portugal durante el segundo cuarto del siglo XVIII, consistente en recurrir al empleo de series de composiciones alegóricas en estancias auxiliares (refectorios, sacristías…) de iglesias y complejos monásticos, sobre todo de carácter femenino, fundamentadas en imágenes emblemáticas que, de acuerdo con el sistema de meditación de Ignacio de Loyola, son usados como punto de partida visual para estimular la devoción o las principales virtudes monásticas.

Ofrecemos en esta presentación un estudio de conjunto de estos cinco programas inspirados en los tratados de ambos autores, desarrollando, además, un análisis integral que atienda a la naturaleza funcional o las características de los espacios físicos donde se ubican, a la posible autoría de los mismos, a los criterios de selección de los emblemas y al mensaje especifico que estos conjuntos proponen en función de las composiciones elegidas.

PIOUS WISHES: EMBLEMS FOR DEVOTIONAL FORMATION IN THE RELIGIOUS PORTUGUESE AZULEJO WORK OF THE FIRST HALF OF THE XVIII CENTURY

Abstract

For several decades now, and especially from the 1990s, we have had an increasingly wide knowledge of the existence in Portugal of various iconographic programs on blue and white azulejos, carried out mainly during the first decades of the 18th century, whose compositions are directly inspired by emblematic books of devotional and doctrinal orientation published during the previous century. Some of them (at least five) come from the most popular and influential works of the genre such as the Schola cordis and the Regia via crucis by Benedictus van Haeften (published for the first time, respectively, in Antwerp, Hieronymus Verdussen, 1629; and Antwerp, Officina Plantiniana/Balthasar Moretus, 1635), or the Pia desideria of the Jesuit priest Hermann Hugo (editio princeps: Antwerp, Henricus Aertsenius, 1624), books that enjoyed numerous later editions and translations into several languages.

Among these ceramic programmes are the panels, now reinstalled in the upper galleries of the cloister of the Convent of Madre de Deus/National Azulejo Museum, in Lisbon, based on the aforementioned works by van Haeften, and from the former Augustinian convent of Grilos . Emblematic compositions from both authors can also be seen on the tiles in the sacristy of the convent of Santo António do Varatojo (Torres Vedras). To these must be added two separate programmes based on the Pia desideria engravings, preserved in the Brotherhood House of Church of Santa Cruz, in Santarem, and in the Chapter House of the convent of Santa Marta, in Lisbon. The repertoire closes, for the moment, with another programme identified by Professor Reyes Escalera Pérez on the walls of the Beja Cathedral, also inspired by engravings of the Pia desideria.

All these programmes respond to a trend that was generalised especially in the central area of Portugal during the second quarter of the 18th century, resorting to the use of series of allegorical compositions in rooms (refectories, sacristies …) of churches and monastic complexes, particularly of a feminine nature. These compositions were based on emblematic images that, according to Ignatius de Loyola’s meditation system, were used as a visual starting point to stimulate devotion or the main monastic virtues.

In this presentation, we will offer a study of these five programs inspired by the treatises of both authors, also developing a comprehensive analysis that addresses 1) the functional nature or characteristics of the physical spaces where they are located; 2) their possible authorship; 3) the emblems selection criteria and; 4) the specific message that these compositions propose based on the chosen images.
