Political theory, law and rule in Catalonia and Valencia (sixteenth and seventeenth centuries)

Non-Oriented Fundamental Research Project. Ministry of Science and Innovation, Government of Spain
Ref. DER 2008-06370-CO3-03

Introduction:
This project is coordinated with two others, whose principal investigators are Jon Arrieta Alberdi (Universidad del País Vasco) and Jesús Morales Arrizabalaga (Universidad de Zaragoza). Its overall purpose is to study, in an interdisciplinary manner between History and History of Law, the politico-constitutional articulation of the Hispanic Monarchy from the late fifteenth to the eighteenth century, in particular the forms of union (aeque principaliter or secondary), of ownership and of the linking of its territories with the monarchy and among themselves. It aims to study elements of both cohesion and tension, paying particular attention to the ruling clades of each kingdom, to the circulation of ministers, information and ideas among the different territories, whether European or American, and the formation of a common grounding of judicial doctrine concerning the configuration of the Monarchy. The project focuses principally on Catalonia and Valencia, within this broader scope and from a comparative perspective.
