Catalonian Manuscripts

A collection of original Catalonian records including a miscellany of legal instruments recording commissions, donations, sales, exchanges, payments, receipts and the like, which evidently survived in old private archives still numerous in Catalonia. The records contain a wealth of information about ordinary people, their names, transactions, and property. Chiefly in Latin, often lapsing into the vernacular. One piece, dated 1497, is entirely in Catalan. Also included are a Catalan translation of De consolatione philosophiae, and a guide to enable Christians to argue convincingly against Jews and Muslims, and persuade them to convert.
