Abstract

For the Fathers of the Church there was nothing intrinsically wrong with dancing. Nevertheless, certain forms of choreutic gesture were often used with a negative connotation to highlight religious alterity. The results of this cultural construction can also be identified at a local level in some sources regarding the Iberian Peninsula. In addition to some conciliar norms, the article considers texts by Licinian of Cartagena, Isidore of Seville and Valerio of Bierzo.
