This work studies the parody of the canonical hours in theLibro de buen amor and it is based on several handbooks about liturgy, roman as well as hispanic, that the Archpriest could probably use for this episode in his book. Thanks to the explanations that these books show about every one of the canonical hours, we can undertand much better the behaviour of the priest who takes the chief role in the episode written by Juan Ruiz.
