The Cortes Catalanas that met in Cervera in 1359 instituted a permanent body to collect and administer taxes, the Diputació del General. This delegate body of the Courts would later become known as the Generalitat.

The Bishop of Girona, Berenguer de Crüilles, was the first president of the Generalitat de Catalunya from 1359 to 1362.

From the 15th century, the Generalitat served executive functions in the governance of political, financial and legal affairs.

The foundation of the Cortes Generales in 1359 was the most significant historical event with regard to the origin and configuration of the Diputació del General or the Generalitat de Catalunya, as it constituted the origin of the Generalitat.

International social justice movements and the debates that ensued prompted us to start considering the contents of our website from a critical point of view. This has led us to acknowledge that most of the texts in our database are Western-centered. We have asked the authors of our content to be aware of the underlying racial and cultural bias in many scholarly sources, and to try to keep in mind multiple points of view while describing the manuscripts. We also recognize that this is yet a small, first step towards fighting inequality.

If you notice any trace of racist or unjust narratives in our communications, please help us be part of the change by letting us know.
