EDITORS COMMENTS
This stunning 14th-century illustration depicts a significant moment in the history of Catalonia: the Catalan Parliament assembled in Montblanc on June 18, 1333, under the chairmanship of Alfonso III, King of Aragon and Count of Barcelona. Known as Alfonso the Kind, he was the son of James II and Blanche of Anjou. The parliament was an essential part of the political structure of the Crown of Aragon, a collection of territories in the western Mediterranean that included Aragon, Catalonia, Valencia, and Majorca. The illustration shows the king seated on a throne, wearing his royal miter and holding a scepter, surrounded by a group of politicians, priests, and scribes. The Catalan Parliament, represented by the white cross on a red background in the lower left corner of the image, is depicted in the background, with the coat of arms of the Crown of Aragon above it. The Folio of Codex of the Usages, the manuscript depicted in the image, is an essential document in the history of Catalan law. It contains the Usatges de Barcelona, a collection of customary law that had been in use in Catalonia since the 13th century. The manuscript was illuminated with intricate miniatures and decorations, reflecting the importance of the document and the prestige of the monarchy. The image provides a glimpse into the political and administrative structures of the Crown of Aragon during the Middle Ages, showcasing the role of the monarch, the parliament, and the scribes in the creation and preservation of the law. The Folio of Codex of the Usages remains an invaluable historical resource, providing insights into the political, legal, and cultural history of Catalonia and the Crown of Aragon.
