The Book of the Wiles of Women (Spanish: El Libro de los Enganos e los Asayamientos de las Mugeres) is a medieval collection of stories, translated from Arabic into Spanish in 1253. The translation was carried out at the request of Frederick of Castile, brother of king Alfonso X, from an unidentified Arabic version, although similar stories were already circulating in Europe in Latin works such as Petrus Alfonsi's Disciplina clericalis. The work is part of the 'Sindibad' or 'Seven Sages' tradition; the majority of the tales may have older origins in India.
