Abstract: in recent years several studies have investigated the use of the technical language of specific fields in the poems of the Cancionero de Baena, but little progress has been made in the study of the technical language of philosophy and theology in this anthology. The Cancionero de Baena contains a great number of erudite compositions in which complex questions of scholastic philosophy are discussed.
