The first session of the series 'Consumption, Demand and Material Culture in Late Medieval Catalonia' will focus on some of the archival sources that researchers can use in order to study these aspects in three different contexts: cities, a noble's house and assistance institutions. The first speaker will present a case study: that of a post-mortem inventory of a Catalan low noble. The second speaker will tell us about the sources that detail the properties of those who were assisted by the Hospital of the Holy Cross of Barcelona.
