Summary

This book is an entertaining approach to what the people of the Golden Age thought about the natural and the supernatural. In its pages the boundaries between the possible and the impossible, the life and the hereafter are erased. The imagination can transform or build reality, and daily life spaces are invaded by elves, goblins, demons, and lost souls. In this book's pages, the reader will realize how some phenomena are perfectly described by the historians and the great writers of Spanish literature. These phenomena appear today in the mass media: sightings of strange lights, abductions, night visitors. Due to its excellent documentation obtained from literary and historical sources and because of the entertaining and efficient reconstruction of the stories that illustrate the pages of this work, this book is the most extensive introduction to how the natural world was conceived and the supernatural and its relationships, by men from the Golden Age. Descubra las claves de la formación, expansión y decadencia de la Corona de Aragón alejada de reivindicaciones nacionales, discursos ideológicos o escritos tendenciosos, tratando lostemas polémicos pero siempre justificando los argumentos y citando todas las fuentes disponibles.Un riguroso y ameno estudio que nos adentra en la apasionante época de la creación de un gran imperio mediterráneo, sus dificultades para superar la crisis bajomedieval, la guerra civil catalana que asoló el territorio durante diez años o las causas de la unión dinástica con la Corona de Castilla, con protagonistas tan sonoros como Jaime I el Conquistador, Ramon Llull, Roger de Flor, Fernando II el Católico y tantos otros. Breve historia de la Corona de Aragón analiza polémicas todavía hoy abiertas, como el origen del escudo de las cuatro barras o la figura de Cristóbal Colón, que siguen siendo objeto de debate entre historiadores.
