Abstract

Memory and identity developed an important role under the public and the private spheres of the medieval society. In order to preserve these elements, writing became the primary source that guaranteed a permanent record. In order to know the mechanisms developed, we will focus on the activity of the professional writers of some Catalan cities and the mechanisms carried out by two noble families to consolidate their authority and construct their own familiar memory.
