Jewish memory in the Cathedral
01/01/2022 - 12/31/2022
The Chapter Archive of the Cathedral of Barcelona preserves thousands of parchments and books that tell the history of the city. Part of this story is related to the Jewish community that has coexisted and shares daily life with other communities. The legal documents kept in this archive (purchases, rentals, wills, etc.) help us to reconstruct personal stories of people who lived in the Jewish quarter of Barcelona or Call. This exhibition allows us to enter the Ancient Archive of 1535, with a sample of original documentation (in Latin, Hebrew and Catalan), which brings us closer to written testimonies that give voice to the inhabitants of medieval Barcelona.
