          The Llibre del gentil i dels seus savis by Ramon Llull (written between 1274 and 1283) belongs to the genre of interreligious dialogue, a forerunner of the beginning of Christian Humanism in the Crown of Aragon in the 15th and 16th centuries. In fact, a detailed analysis of the influence of this work on Metge’s Lo Somni through some structural and formal intertextualities evince the value and relevance of the gentil in Llull’s philosophical, moral and even ethical thought and its influence on LS. The model of the gentil articulates the beginning of both works and is a key for the division into sections of the two of them, the explanation for the dissemination of error and therefore for the condemnation of the monotheistic morality. In addition, it is the basis for the dialogue and philosophical disputatio of both works. In sum, Llull represents the prelude to the ideological opening towards rationality that is later confirmed with Metge within the framework of the origins of Christian Humanism.
