AbstractBefore the designation "mal francese/morbus gallicus" achieved its overwhelming dominance in Renaissance Europe, and the venereal transmission of chis condition was generally accepted, the new disease was given other names and assigned very different identities in and outside ltaly. This paper explores in contemporary medical sources (both printed and manuscript) its early traces in the Crown of Castile at the turn of the sixteenth century. The focus is on those medical perceptions of the origins, nature, name, and causes of the «French Pox» that were more specific to late fifteenth-century Castile, with particular attention to the earliest debates regarding a question that will be avidly discussed for centuries: whether this disease affected ordinary men more than nobility or quite the opposite.
