The Reapers
Els Segadors (The reapers) was declared in 1993 by the parliament of Catalonia, an autonomous region within Spain, to be the official anthem of the region. This hymn was not written for any particular purpose; rather, it was the product of the long historical evolution of a popular song. The words to the song go back to an historical event, the Reapers' War that began in 1640, when 1,000 laborers entered Barcelona on Corpus Christi Day, using their sickles as weapons. The revolt was a response to the abuses ...
Grievances of Guitart Isarn, Lord of Cabó
Dating from 1080, Greuges de Guitard Isarn, senyor de Caboet (Grievances of Guitart Isarn, Lord of Cabó) is believed to be the oldest surviving document in Catalan. The rancures were grievances that were written acts by means of which a lord asked for the restitution of damages caused by the breach of the feudal contract. In this document, Guitart Isarn, Lord of Cabó, recounts the humiliation he has suffered at the hands of his vassals, the castellans of Cabó, Guillem Arnall and his sons. Guitart Isarn repeatedly uses the ...
Abadal Album of Samples
The Abadal family, from Moià and later from Manresa, was one of the main producers of prints in Catalonia in the Baroque period, during the 17th and 18th centuries. Soon after it was founded, the Biblioteca de Catalunya acquired from the family a large set of xylographic materials, both woodcuts and engravings on wood. Among these materials was the sample album that the printing house placed at the disposal of customers to help them choose the items they wanted included in the prints they ordered. The album features a wide ...
Canigó
Canigó is regarded as the best epic poem by Jacint Verdaguer (1845−1902), the most important Catalan writer of the 19th century and a leading figure of the Catalan renaissance. A Roman Catholic priest who served in a variety of pastoral positions, Verdaguer wrote mainly lyric and epic poetry, as well as a number of personal diaries, notebooks and journal articles. Canigó (named for Mount Canigou) is set in Catalonia at the beginning of the 11th century at the time of the Reconquista, the gradual liberation by the Christians of ...
Maritime Regulations
Libre appellat Consolat de mar (Maritime regulations) is a collection of maritime and commercial ordinances and decrees of medieval origin that once had legal authority. The text comes from the ancient Costumes de la Mar, of Barcelona, written between 1260 and 1270. It integrates Catalan norms as well as those from other sources, including Pisan, Genoese, Venetian, and Marsilian. The definitive writing was done in the 14th century in Barcelona, with the addition of other legal texts. The work was widely circulated. Among the numerous editions printed in Catalan, two ...
Compendium of the Art of Arithmetic
Suma de la art de arismetica (Compendium of the art of arithmetic) is the first arithmetic printed on the Iberian Peninsula and possibly the second printed in Europe. Very little is known about the author, Francesc Santcliment, other than that he lived in the 15th−16th centuries. Where he was born and where he died are unknown.  As he indicates in his text and in the bibliography and reference works, he seems to have worked in the Catalan territories, in Barcelona and Perpignan. Some authors also place him in Zaragoza ...
L'Atlàntida, Volume 1, Number 1, 15 May 1896
L’Atlàntida (Atlantis) is a literary magazine in Catalan. It began publishing almost 20 years after the appearance of the great Catalan epic poem of the same name by Jacint Verdaguer, who won special honors at the Jocs Florals for the work and by it consolidated La Renaixença, the Catalan renaissance of the 19th century. The magazine reflects the evolution from Renaixença to Modernism. Between 1896 and 1900, when publication ceased, 169 issues appeared. The magazine was published on the 1st and 15th of each month rather than strictly fortnightly ...
La Renaxensa, Volume 1, Number 1, 1 February 1871
La Renaixensa was the first periodical written entirely in Catalan since 1714, when King Philip V of Spain banned the language. La Renaixensa (La Renaxensa between 1871 and 1876) takes its name from the movement that was born at the end of 18th century and early in the 19th with the cautious writing of some works in Catalan. The magazine was founded in 1871 as a literary magazine and appeared twice a month. Two years later it began to include political articles, which led to it being suspended in 1878 ...
Luz, Volume 1, Number 1, 15 November 1897
The literary and art magazine Luz (Light), published in 18 issues between mid-November 1897 and late December 1898, expressed the innovative force of the modernists, mainly in its graphic design. It was a slim and refined publication, in a long format (365mm x 155mm) that clearly showed the wish for change with respect to inherited culture. It was the first magazine of the modernist movement to incorporate a variety of text fonts and daringly bold compositions. It is considered the forerunner of the representative magazines Quatre Gats (1899), Pèl & ...
Spiritual Chant

The poem had great influence in Catalonia and is one of the best known and most studied of the works of Joan Maragall (1860−1911). It was composed in three periods: the first verses in November 1909 and the rest between January and February 1910. Written in the tradition of spiritual chants of many other great poets, the author poses questions to God and makes explicit his doubts, fears, and ...
Homilies of Organyà
Written in all likelihood by a priest in the town of Organyà, in north-central Catalonia, in circa 1203-4, this brief manuscript contains six homilies, intended to prepare believers for penance during the season of Lent. The little volume is incomplete; it probably originally contained 11 homilies, but some sheets were lost in the course of time and those that have been preserved have had their margins cut. The sermons are copied in a script that marks a transition between Carolingian and gothic writing. It is a very personal document, written ...
Book for Women
Francesc Eiximenis (circa 1340–1409) was a Franciscan monk and a prolific writer. He studied in Catalonia, Oxford, and Toulouse, and probably in Paris. Considered a prestigious intellectual, he maintained good relations with the court of the kingdom of Aragon and with the municipal authorities of Barcelona and Valencia, the city where he wrote most of his works. In 1396 he finished writing Llibre de les dones (Book for women). The book avoids the misogynist tendency of its times. It is intended as a work of moral instruction, which it ...
