ABSTRACT
This study of the work of the Jewish convert physician and poet Francisco López de Villalobos (1474-1549) gives a wide piece of biographical news and considers his role as a physician of Castilian aristocracy and royalty, with special emphasis on his condition of Jewish convert. A new approach to his humanist and literary work in the Castilian Renaissance shows him as the author of a valuable Castilian and Latin epistolary, being a precursor of certain aspects of jesting literary, modern essaying, and translation of classical authors, such as Pliny and Plautus, from Latin into Spanish. The study ends with the analysis of Villalobos' narrative of the Revolution of Communities of Castile (1520-21). Conclusions, sources, and bibliography complete this historiographical essay.
