Alfonso X of Castile, patron of literature and learning
Alfonso X (1252-1284) was one of the outstanding royal patrons of the 13th century. The work done at his court included translations from the Arabic of treatises on astronomy, astrology, and magic and works of cooperative scholarship which appear to have been part of a scheme to provide standard reference works. Procter's five essays give an overview of Alfonso's role as a patron of learning.
