Historical research

This section aims to search for and publish texts—in whole or in part—or declarations by Josep Puig i Cadafalch himself, as well as by people who have spoken about him, in order to disseminate his thoughts on the topics he dealt with and on the Catalonia that he experienced throughout his long existence. This encompasses events ranging from the loss of what remained of the Spanish colonial empire (1898), the Tragic Week (1909), and the foundation of the Commonwealth of Catalonia (1914)—which he presided during six difficult years—to the dictatorship of Primo de Rivera, the Second Republic, the Civil War and, finally, the Franco dictatorship.
