In marca hispanica (trips one, two and three)

Something I should have done some considerable time ago, an index page for the posts I’ve written about my travels to Catalonia as medieval historian. The first trip recorded here was done in March of 2008 with my then-partner cheerfully serving as driver, the second in January 2009 with my pre-teen son in tow and the third solo and wheels-less in May 2011. More will doubtless follow!

Trip the First

Here a grateful nod of acknowledgement to Professor Steve Muhlberger, who got tired of waiting for me to mount some kind of index to the posts for this trip and did so himself here; I’ve been linking to that since then and it is long past time it was relieved. Thankyou, Steve! The actual posts were:

  1. In marca hispanica I: Girona
  2. In marca hispanica II: Barcelona from Romans to Gaudí
  3. In marca hispanica III: cartoon nationalism
  4. In marca hispanica IV: Sacalm and Tona and nationalist sentiment 889-2008
  5. In marca hispanica V: Vic, charters, cathedrals, metal bishops and stone slabs
  6. In marca hispanica VI: Plana de Gurb (but not the castle)
  7. In marca hispanica VII: Besalú and its rainy gardens
  8. In marca hispanica VIII: pilgrimage to see Emma
  9. In marca hispanica IX: actual charter scholarship

Trip the Second

  1. In marca hispanica X: Been to Barcelona

  3. In marca hispanica XIII: more stones than parchment, I (Santa Maria de Ripoll)
  4. In marca hispanica XIV: l’Esquerda, city of helpful archæologists
  5. In marca hispanica XV: gratuitous Carolingian church sidetrack, a short diversion to Sant Esteve de Tavèrnoles
  6. In marca hispanica XVI: the actual research target, on Sant Pere de Casserres
  7. In marca hispanica XVII: hidden temples and empty palaces, on Vic
  8. In marca hispanica XVIII: more stones than parchment II (Sant Pere de Vilamajor)
