Catalonia in the Era of Charles III

Second Conference of Early Modern Catalan History (1988)

The Second Conference of Early Modern Catalan History was dedicated to the analysis of the political, social, economic and cultural circumstances that occurred in the Catalonia of Charles III. With contributions from an extensive selection of researchers from diverse universities of the Spanish state, the meetings undertaken focused on the need to question the supposed harmony between the official reformism and Catalonia’s economic vitality during the reign of said monarch.

In this sense, the meetings brought to light the fragmentation of the historical reality of Charles III’s Catalonia and contributed to the diffusion of a more integrated perspective of the landscape of eighteenth-century Catalonia.
