Book of great typographic beauty which compiles for the first time the Valencian statutory legislation from James I up to the XV century.

There were manuscript charters which therefore reached a limited audience.

For the first time in 1482 these were printed achieving great dissemination and use by the lawyers of the fifteenth century.

This book contains the Charters of King James I and Alphonse II of Valencia.

In years after 1240 the aspirations of the "costum" depended on the King’s willingness, who had granted it. For this the city and some towns attempted to obtain the irrevocability of Valencian law on behalf of the King, the definite constitution of the Kingdom as Autonomous State.

This took place in April 1261, in which evidence is shown of the celebration of the first Valencian "Corts", in which king James swore in the "Furs" and the "Costumes" of Valencia, and stated that, just as he had sworn and confirmed the charters and the customs, his successor should also do so before the "Cort General", at the beginning of their reign.

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.
