The famous translation of Inês de Castro’s body from Coimbra to Alcobaça, in 1361, and its deposition in the beautiful tomb that future generations, ever since then, never ceased to admire at the Monastery of Alcobaça reached its climax in a beautiful and emotional discourse: the "Sermon in the funeral of D. Inês de Castro," by D. João de Cardaillac, Archbishop of Braga, whose eloquence and oratory had earned him the most noble and prominent position of official speaker at the papal court in Avignon. Scientific knowledge is combined with rhetorical proficiency to justify, by solid legal and religious arguments, the validity of D. Pedro’s marriage with D. Inês and the licitness of their loves. This work presents a study on the implications of the sermon and its historical circumstances as well as its critical edition and translation, together with a philological commentary, in order to provide a solid study that meets the needs that experts in a broad range of scientific fields had already expressed, without neglecting, however, the interests of non-academic audiences.
