Crónica de las monjas Brígidas de la Ciudad de México

Abstract [en]

This chronicle deals with the foundation of the first convent of St. Bridget in Mexico in 1743. It presents six nuns from the convent of Vitoria, Spain, who were chosen to travel to Mexico. The founders in Mexico were José Francisco de Aguirre and his wife Gertrudis Roldan y Maldonado. When the nuns arrived in Mexico their convent was not completed, so they temporarily lived in the convent of Regina Coeli. On the 21st of December 1744, they could finally move into their own convent. The aim of this dissertation is to make accessible a critical edition of a chronicle of historical, ecclesiastical and linguistic interest. In this edition (p. 49-116 out of totally 245 pages written by six different hands) three hands are involved, one Spanish and two Mexican.

In the linguistic study paleographic and orthographic phenomenons are accounted for as well as morphology, syntax and textual structure. The parts written by the Mexican nuns contain, for instance, yeismo and seseo. There are also examples of laismo and the form -se in the past tense of subjunctive mood of the verb. The morphology and syntax are very close to the usage of today. Its textual structure follows the patterns of spoken colloquial language, it is also characterized by some learned and ecclesiastic features.

The text, presented with a critical apparatus, is followed by a vocabulary containing archaic words, mostly of religious character, and an onomastic list. Some documents are appended (found in the General National Archives of Mexico City), which contribute to the picture of how the order was founded. A summary in English concludes this work.
