They were also political alliances that inuenced choices and determined options regarding public life.

Moreover, it was thanks to what we can call a long familiarity with the political landscape of the Iberian peninsula that the great Sicilian families had relatives, agents, friends, and allies at court. Representation at court of the Kingdom of Sicily was thus far from being limited to the presence of a regent in the Council of Italy and a secretary or a court chaplain or two.

An examination of private correspondence with persons sent to court shows us a complex universe of close but informal contacts that conveyed political relations of notable importance. Big cities were endowed with political traditions and invested with privileges. These cities attempted to tailor an intermediary space for themselves. Here the presence of a special case like that of Messina, one of the most privileged cities of the monarchy, should be stressed, not only in its own right, but also for the example it provides in contrast to other urban centers.

One of the main characteristics of Messinas liberty, which all the other cities of Sicily tended, in dierent ways, to imitate, was the presence and activities of its agents and representatives at court. The open model of integration not only left room for rival models, but even tended to encourage them. Palermo, the contested capital city, reacted to Messinas attack by focusing on its role as a court city, hence a natural place of residence of Sicilian noble families as well as the new noble families who were rising in society thanks to the wealth they had accumu-.

Tavilla, Per la storia delle istituzioni municipali a Messina tra Medioevo ed et moderna, 2 vols. Messina: Societ Messinese di Storia Patria, Palermo welcomed them and welcomed the transformations they introduced as was true in Naples 24 when they built their city houses or palaces there, but also when they founded monasteries and charitable institutions.

Common themes are everywhere: in the baroque restructuring of the realm of the sacred; in a widespread fondness for Spanish reed spear tournament and bullghts juegos de caas and toros , for preaching, and for the theater; in a passion for the new style of urban decoration borrowed from Rome,26 and, conversely, even for criticism of the court and an exaltation of country living alabanza de aldea. From that viewpoint the vice-regal court represented a fundamental pivot point: it was a center of transmission for the new cultural initiatives, the fashions, and the new directions taken by a governing class thatfrom Madrid to Palermo coordinated, rened, and continually modied its tastes.

Integration and Division to These basic processes and this convergence made possible by a mechanism of supple integration were subject to phases of acceleration dictated by politics. The rst of these arose out of the side eects of the introduction of the system of valimiento. These processes continued on into the age of Philip III , together with a notable increase in matrimonial ties between the Sicilian nobility and the Castilian aristocracy.

It is with the duke of Osunas arrival in Sicily as viceroy that we can begin to see clearly to how great an extent these options tended to become divisive, hence to produce conict. This was no longer a simple clash between two privileged cities, Messina and Palermo, in competition for the title of capital city; on a deeper level, it reected two diering conceptions of the role of Sicilian participation in the Monarchy.

La sposa italiana

One portion of Sicilian society resisted in the face of the viceroys rst attempt to break down certain privileged arrangements guaranteeing others, and with them in essence reinforcing the strategic importance of the power block of grain interests concentrated in Palermo around the viceroy.

It is interesting to note that this resistance, which was aimed at both the conservation of interests and the defense of traditional ideas regarding the limits of viceregal action and the nature of relations between the Crown and the Kingdom, met with an attentive hearing from some members of the Council of Italy and the court. This means that divisions existing at court and in Sicily began to converge. Obviously, this was not the rst time that correlations of the sort had ever occurred.

During the course of the sixteenth century there had been important alliances between factions at court. Often these alignments arose thanks to a viceroy: Garcia de Toledo , for example, relied on the support of the largest Sicilian political block the Aragona and Tagliavia families ;30 Marcantonio Colonna attempted to create a party of his own. It is signicant that the principal attacks on Colonna came from the Inquisition, another supposed channel of integration. This is indicative of just how interconnected court politics and political interests in the periphery had already become.

Growing scal pressures due to the increased cost of the state infrastructure and, soon, to war expenditures, add to this picture. These pressures created a competition for honors, a race for population growth between the older centers and newly founded ones,32 and rivalries for preeminence and a spirit of conict in the sphere of the sacred. The rst thing to note is that the consolidation of the Olivares regime brought no serious attempt to curtail Messinas system of privileges. In spite of the attacks periodically launched by some of the viceroys, who were often persons linked to various groups opposed to Olivares, the Council of Italy made no move to change the status quo, either regarding Messinas controversial economic privileges or the no less controversial theoretical parity between Messina a Palermo as the residence of the viceroy.

To be sure, the project conceived in Messina to divide the Kingdom did not pass in the Council,35 but that does not mean that the citys demands and interests were not on the table. The basic tendency of the Olivares regime in Sicily was thus not to push for a reduction of the regime of exemptions and privileges. It was instead to seek to enlarge Sicilys participation in nancing the monarchys war eort by all available means.

To this end, some viceroys tried to break down various aspects of the system of immunities and to increase receipts from the towns. The principal political problem facing the regime was thus to make use of viceroys who, by and large, were men from a noble group not well integrated into the Olivares regimes system of power. The result was a climate of mistrust, if not open and reciprocal didence, which can be observed in the s but was even more evident in the s. The letters of Francisco De Mello, Olivaress right-hand man, who served briey as viceroy of Sicily on the eve of the tumultuous s, gives impressive testimony to this tense climate.

This preoccupation was reinforced by instances of resistance that appeared in the ecclesiastical sphere, in. XVI, 6 vols. Lotta politica e rappresentanza degli interessi nella Sicilia del Seicento, Societ e storia 47 : Parliament, and more sharply expressed in tract literature. Some theologians returned to the theme of the limits to sovereign power;37 another example of this resistance is in the broad hearing for theses such as those of Antonino Diana, traces of which can be found in a signicant text of the revolt in Naples of known as Il cittadino fedele.

Jurisdictional conicts merged with a tangled web of economic and territorial tensions and with unrest in the sphere of the sacred. No individual, no institution, felt totally secure in the relative position guaranteed by its status. The Causes of Conict This gave new prominence to earlier traditions concerning the political conditions of Sicilys participation in the Spanish monarchy. He cites Aristotle as stating that in the case of barbarians Dominion by one person alone is just and legitimate. He comments, With all this, such. Moreover, Corsetto adds: It is untrue, as some claim, that Italian subjects must be governed with tyranny, because this proposition is a greater oense to the one who governs than to those who are governed: the fact that a leader is considered a tyrant is very detrimental to the public good and to the service of the king himself.

Surely the Italians, because they are not of a servile and abject nature, are not like the barbarians of which Aristotle speaks, who must be controlled with a heavy hand as a master would a slave, or as a commander would who has placed himself above the law. Sicilians in particular, who are Italians, do not need to be governed despotically for certain reasons, they have merited that their kings treat them as if they were the monarchs own children. The Sicilians should be treated as ones children and not as slaves; justice should be administered according to their laws, under which they delivered themselves voluntarily to the Crown of Aragon.

As Aristotle says, beware the hatred that is turned against those who would impose themselves excessively on their subjects. The king of Spain, Corsetto declares, is royal monarch in the states of Spain, Flanders, Naples, Sicily, and Milan, such monarchs either govern themselves directly, as those of Castile, or through their ocers. He is lord monarch in the West Indies, where the king has dominion not only in universal but even more in particular.

In practice, the Indies are all of the royal patrimony, in which no one possesses anything unless recognized by the King. In reality, the famous Avvertimenti of Scipio di Castro do not present this viewpoint,44 but Corsetto attacks the Deputation of the Estates and declares that since the duke of Maquedas time that body has been corrupted and that those who wish to avoid paying their creditors put all their assets, even property that are not grain elds, in the hands of the Deputation, commit a thousand frauds in the leases, and take for themselves so much of the last scraps that nothing remains for the creditors.

Thus it was advisable to give nobles the few posts that were availablefor example, as pretore the highest judicial post in Palermo, by appointment by the viceroy or stratigoto or stratic, a direct representative of the king, president of Messinas court of law. This line of thought was vigorously reiterated in the s by Luigi Moncada viceroy, , prince of Patern, who records in a series of memoranda that the conservation of extended monarchies, with such separated members, consists of unifying the distant regions and customs through bonds of friendship, kinship ties, and mutual interest.

He further states:. Saitta, ed. Rome: Edizioni di Storia e Letteratura, Los que no quieren pagar a sus acreedores ponen en deputacin qualesquiera bienes rayzes aunque no sean seminatorios, cometen mil fraudes en los arrendamientos, sacan por ellos mismos los alimentos tan pingues que no queda nada para los acreedores. In the following paragraph, Ibid. The governments of Valencia, Catalonia, and Aragon are the means and the merit to the Spanish to achieve the greatest positions that we seek.

The Italian posts cannot be a desirable reward and nal goal of their rise; there their hopes would end where others begin. What pestilence, Lord, does the Italian sky instill in the hearts of those born in other provinces, the need to undermine more than elsewhere the integrity of justice and the intention of those men? What merit or privilege does nature give to those born in other provinces that their rectitude is believed more incorrupt than ours?

It is worth recalling that Luigi Moncada was later involved in the pro-French conspiracy of ,47 when it became clear that underlying the urban populaces revolt to protest social conditions that had become intolerable there was a subterranean but decisive disquietude among the aristocratic governing class. In Sicily as elsewhere the fall of Olivares in did not in fact produce the soothing eects that Philip IV had hoped for, or, at best, did so only temporarily. After a rst phase of recuperation and reassurance, promoted by the acts of Juan Alfonso Enriquez de Cabrera, the Admiral of Castile, viceroy of Sicily ,48 it was clear to everyone that Olivaress dismissal did not signify a complete realignment of factions within the court, and that Lus de Haro provided physical continuity for the ongoing power of groups formerly aligned with Olivares that his opposition would have liked to.

Valencia, Catalua y Aragon estos goviernos son, medios y merito a los espanoles para lograr los puestos mas grandes de que nos arojan. No los pueden apetexer los italianos como premio y ultimo n de sus ascensos, all acavarian sus experanzas donde las otras empiezan; Que pestilencia comunica Seor en los corazones el ielo italiano para que aya de prebaricar mas que en otra partes la entereza de justiia y la intencion de aquellos hombres, que razon de merito o qual privilegio dio la naturaleza, a los naidos en otras provincias para que se e de ellos mas yncorrupta la rectitud que en nosotros?

At the same time, the demands of war made it impossible to reduce scal pressure or prevent the adoption of systems of executive tax-collection put into eect in the Olivares period that had elicited strong resistance. As a result, divisions within Sicilian society were even further accentuated, and there was a tendency among some members of the aristocracy not to exercise their own right and duty to exert social control, thus, in essence, giving free rein to popular resentment of a tax system that was more and more obviously iniquitous. The outbreak of the revolt of signaled the rst major break in the system of integration as it had evolved in Spanish Sicily.

A discontented aristocracy imbued with a frondeur spirit found an echo in the determination of the urban corporations to renegotiate the terms of the taxation of urban resources. A return to normality included the punishment of certain popular leaders, to be sure, but the social compromise that was arrived at increased rather than diminished the power of the Palermo guilds. Conict in the second half of the seventeenth century After a phase of readjustment in the s and the early s, years in part distinguished by an overall reduction in scal pressures, 49 Anna Siciliano, Sulla rivolta di Palermo nel , Archivio Storico Sciliano, vols.

On this topic, see Francesca Gallo, Lalba dei gattopardi: La formazione della classe dirigente nella Sicilia austriaca Catanzaro: Meridiana, Two competing groups emerged out of the citys governing class: the rst, in the minority, was intent on defending the citys privileges; the other, the majority, was disposed to make moderate sacrices in exchange for a greater attention on the part of the Crown to Messinas strategic interests. The latter group, which had championed Messinas loyalty to the Crown during the events of , but who had supported Don Juan of Austria, the Admiral of Castile, on that occasion and had continued to cultivate relations with Philip IVs illegitimate son for some time after then, found itself out of favor and without ecacious connections at a court dominated rst by Father Nithard and later by Fernando Valenzuela.

Mariana, queen and regent, refused to grant Messinas representatives the customary qualication as ambassadors, which amounted to something like a declaration of her rejection of the citys representation.

This move was followed by sending Luis De Hoyo to Messina in the post of stratic with the charge of creating a pro-government party in that city. This occurred just as pro-autonomy sentiment was gaining ground in that city, since the group that had backed Don Juan could no longer guarantee fruitful political integration. As a consequence, Spanish dominion over Sicily was for a time perceived as threatened, thanks to diversionary actions on the part of the French eet. The result was the liqudation of the anomalous status of Messinasomething that the supposedly centralizing regime of Olivares had never dreamed of putting into act and had.

For the overall interpretation underlying this thesis, see Benigno, Specchi della rivoluzione: Conitto e identit politica nellEuropa moderna Rome: Donzelli, This change was realized, still for political reasons, by the regime of the regency of Mariana de Austria , a regime generally considered little inclined to impose its own will at swords point and just as generally held to be disposed to compromise or even to a restauracin de fuerosa reinstatement of local privileges.

Conclusion: Call for a new Approach As it should be clear even from this necessarily summary description of the complex system of political integration that governed relations between Sicily and the Spanish monarchy in the sixteenth century and its evolution in the seventeenth century, the conventional thesis of the so-called pact or historical compromise subscribed to by the elitessomething like a contract stipulating the safeguard of their social preeminence in exchange for a renunciation of political hegemonyis essentially misleading.

Rather than continuing in that vein, we need a new line of research that will investigate the modalities of integration by analyzing cultural models and their circulation and diusion. Only then will we have a more fully articulated vision of Sicilys participation in the composite Habsburg Monarchy. The essential problems, in Sicily as in Naples,52 were still those of political participation. The old system of parallel or competing channels of integration was thrown into crises by the need for a greater and more functional executive power, required by the system of the valimiento in times of war.

But, as Olivares had clearly seen, this change in traditional arrangements would have required a greater, not a lesser, circulation of the elites within the combined monarchy. He credits the existence of a Neapolitan road to the modern state and, by implication, that of some sort of irremediably dierent Sicilian road.

See Aurelio Musi, Mezzogiorno spagnolo: La via Napoletana allo stato moderno Naples: Guida, , and Musi, Il compromesso tra la monarchia spagnola e la feudalit nella via napoletana allo stato moderno, in Francesco Benigno and Claudio Torrisi, eds. This did not occur, and the consequence of the rampant expansion of Spanish scal policy, combined with a nearly total absence of political representation and conict among various sectors of Sicilian society ledas it did in other parts of Europe during the same period, and for not too dissimilar reasonsto open revolt.

The Catalan Era: A Time of Wars and Commerce Sardinia is the region in Italy that can boast of having, if not the oldest, certainly the most longstanding political and cultural ties with Spain. But it is with Catalonia, and only with Catalonia, that the island achieved a reciprocal penetration that in principle was only institutional, but that with time became economic and cultural as well. In the late thirteenth and beginning of the fourteenth century, the Catalans, in the phase of their mercantile expansion along the diagonal of the islands, reached the western coast of Sardinia.

The merchants of Barcelona were aiming at some of the basic resources of the island, in particular silver from the mines of Iglesias, salt from the southern lagoons, coral from the west coast, and agricultural and pastoral products such as grain, hides, and cheeses. The popes intention was to remove Sardinia from the sphere of inuence exerted by the ruling families from Liguria and Tuscany, often in erce competition among themselves, whose dominion was almost unopposed yet at the same time out of the control of the Communes to which they belonged.

The king of Aragons military conquest, supported at rst by the giudice who ruled the district of Arbora, the kings most powerful Sardinian vassal, was far from easy. In the fourteenth and fteenth. Complex re-combinations of power and swift changes of front and alliance created a time of political instability and social crises unequaled in Sardinian history. The weakness of the royal authority in the face of the overwhelming power of lords of Italian and Hispanic origin limited Catalan domination to a few commercial ports on the western coast that the Crown strategically populated only with Catalan citizens.

In order to maintain its control over the territory, the crown of Aragon radically restructured its political and military organization. It imposed schemes of domination typical of feudalism,2 in contrast to the liberal tradition pointed out years ago by Jaume Vicens Vives and Mario Del Treppo of Catalan mercantile expansionism. An economic and social framework conditioned by war resulted in an abnormal increase in public works within the economy. The civic councils and the feudal lords were charged with regulating production and exchange, in particular in the sectors of grain production and coral shery.

A municipal regime was set up based on a series of immunities, exemptions, and economic and juridical benets that favored the Catalan newcomers, with the result that the cities became the physical site for commercial and provisioning privileges in the centuries that followed. Other laws provided for the reorganization of municipal governments, following the model of Barcelona,.

Napoli, ; Claude Carrre, Barcelone centre conomique lpoque des dicults Paris and the Hague: Mouton, Massimo Guidetti, vol. Barcelona: Publicacions Universitat de Barcelona, , 1: This was the most important political innovation of the time, because it was introduced into a largely un-urbanized society, thus modifying both internal social organization within those cities and relations between the city and the countryside.

The crisis was destined to last for a long time, rst because of the total absence of the king, but also because feudal anarchy could be contained only at the cost of continual and lacerating confrontations between the viceroy and the noble factions. The launching of an organic project for the economic and political reorganization of the Crown of Aragon permitted Sardinia as well to enter into a benecial cycle of modernization. In the island kingdom the primary objectives of the redre initiated by Ferdinand were a rationalization of administrative and nancial structures, the limitation of lordly and territorial powers, the extension of the crown lands realengo , and the direct exploitation of royal revenues, which for too long a time had been prey to the appetites of private contractors and prone to bureaucratic and lordly abuses.

In the late Middle Ages the feudal system and municipal government, the cornerstone of institutions of the Kingdom of Sardinia, had made up for an evanescent royal authority, at rst represented. Later in the fteenth century a viceroy was invested with military and administrative responsibilities and, to some extent, with political ones. The administration of the royal patrimony was entrusted to a royal procurator. A large measure of autonomy in his functions enabled this royal minister to lay down guidelines for scal policy and for the management of the royal patrimony, tasks that also involved determining contracts for the collection of taxes, granting efs and conceding emphyteusis contracts, and exacting loans and rents.

The royal procurators oce was of fundamental importance when the monarchy moved to recuperate parts of its patrimony that had passed into the hands of the great noble houses. The reforms put into place under Ferdinand also included the establishment, in , of the oce of maestro racionala chief supervisor of scal administration in the Kingdomautonomous of its analogue in Barcelona and, in , the creation of the oce of the receptor del reservado to receive revenues from the royal domains.

A decade earlier, in , the oce of the regente of the real cancillera was established as a ministry directly under the vice-chancellor of Aragon charged with assisting the viceroy in the governance of the Kingdom. Nonetheless, some reforms were put into eect so slowly that the new institutions took on characteristics that diered from their model. One case in point is the Corts parliament , which had certain unique political aspects. During the fourteenth and fteenth centuries the Corts gained notable institutional and political importance in the mainland kingdoms of the Aragonese; in Sardinia, however, they met only twice, on the occasion of fortuitous visits of Peter the Ceremonious and Alfonso the Magnanimous.

For all intents and purposes, there was no parliamentary tradition in Sardinia in the fteenth century; the Sardinian Parliament gained ground only in the age of Ferdinand the Catholic, just at the timeparadoxicallythat the institution was beginning to show signs of political weakness elsewhere. The Crown of Aragons comprehensive reorganization included the creation of the Supreme Council of Aragon in and reform of the municipal governments, including lling posts by drawing names out of a sack insaculaci and selecting council members consellers by drawing lots.

In the plans of the Catholic king, the role that Sardinia was expected to play was far from marginal, given that two basic resources of grain and coral gured in its economy. This was the reason for the renewal of mercantile exchanges between Sardinian ports and ports on the east coast of Spain, Valencia in particular, whose economy had beneted from economic reversals in Barcelona after the Catalan civil war At the death of Ferdinand the Catholic the institutional and economic modernization of Sardinia was close to completion.

The reform of the bureaucracy and the municipal governments, the balance between crown lands realengo and feudal lands, the enlargement of. Miquel Batllori and Emili Giralt, 2 vols. Barcelona: Editorial Vicens-Vives, , On municipal reform, see Torras i Rib, Els municipis catalans. Sassari: Delno, , It was an institution unfamiliar to the political culture of the Kingdom of Sardinia, but with time it became the locus of periodic understandings between the monarch and the privileged classes.

Conceived of as an instrument for political mediation, the Sardinian Parliament was only rarely able to make full use of the contractual parliamentary procedures pactisme that aimed at defending or preserving liberties that is, the laws, privileges, and constitutions, and the common law of the Kingdom.

It was to be simply the proper place for formulating the particularistic demands of the elites who were represented in its ranks. Its dialectical relation with the Crown usually went no farther than reciprocal satisfaction: the kings scal contributions were met, in exchange for which privileges, collective and personal, were granted and the special interests of the municipalities and the lords were reinforced. Within the Imperial System of the Spanish Habsburgs During the sixteenth century new social forces arose within the government of the Sardinian cities.

New men gradually preempted the areas of power of the old Catalan dynasties, establishing themselves as an urban governing class. At the same time, they maintained extensive land-holdings in country areas, which meant that they controlled the agricultural and pastoral production that continued to provide the bulk of resources in the regions economy.

It was members of the minor landed nobility and the royal and feudal bureaucracy who managed to grasp notable opportunities for social advancement and personal enrichment in their management of delegated power. As administrators of efs and holders of contracts for collecting taxes, royal ocials in peripheral areas invested the pro9 Bruno Anatra, Istituzioni e societ nella Sardegna spagnola: Medioevo persistente o modernizzazione zoppa?

When such new men had improved their economic status and acquired social prestige, they found it an easy task to insert themselves into the closed society of the municipal governments, where posts were traditionally reserved for the merchant oligarchies. The new governing classes of the rst half of the sixteenth century set themselves three basic objectives: to govern the municipalities, to conserve the cities privileges in the aim of managing their commerce and controlling the peasant economy, and to acquire military privileges in order to reach equal status with the nobility of the sword, the descendants of the old Catalan and Valencian families.

It is in the light of these premises that the urban patriciate reached an agreement with the new Habsburg monarchy. At his accession to his various Spanish thrones, Charles of Ghent obtained the unhesitating approval of the Sardinian elites. The dynastic changes were accepted unconditionally by the Kingdom of Sardinia during the Cortes of Saragossa of , which were attended by syndics representing the Sardinian cities, and also during the Sardinian Parliament presided over by the viceroy, Angel de Vilanova, held the following year in Cagliari.

This was a sign of the absence of a true contractual tradition in the Sardinian Parliament. In particular, however, the Parliaments acquiescence to rules and innovations imposed from above is symptomatic of the reduced contractual power of the Sardinian parliaments; it foreshadowed an institutionalized absenteeism of the sovereign, whose surrogate in Parliament was, from that time on, the viceroy. Ernest Belenguer Cebri, 3 vols. In a historical period in which geographical and political horizons were broadening with extraordinary rapidity, Sardinians remained, in substance, aligned with the Catalan positions of conserving the historical and political unity of the Crown of Aragon and its juridical and administrative autonomy.

These were shoals on which Sardinian loyalty to the imperial cause seems to have vacillated and unpleasant occurrences were even more keenly felt during the regency of Princess Juana, when economic diculties and problems of government were heightened by the centralization of royal largesse in the imperial court. We can read the signs of the imperial courts weak perception of the problems of peripheral areas and of a disconnect between it and the Spanish court in government measures regarding the Mediterranean kingdoms.

The instructions sent from Brussels in to the regent, Juana, imposed a dual line of conduct for the administration of the islands: the Balearic Islands were to adopt the legal system that governed the kingdoms of the mainland; whereas because it is near Italy, Sardinia was to follow Sicily in matters of govern-.

Joan Pau Rubis i Mirabet, La qesti imperial en el pensament poltic de la Catalunya moderna: Histria duna absncia, Manuscrits, 17 : This ran counter to centuries-long tradition, however, as conrmed only a few years earlier by a viceroy in Sardinia who enjoyed close connections to the imperial entourage. As Anton Folch de Cardona wrote to Charles V in , Not only is this island not part of the Italian realm, but for many reasons, it is not even Italian, primarily because the supreme pontis granted it to the Kings of Aragon as a efdom and also because the inhabitants are not subject to its laws and its constitution but rather to those of Catalonia and Aragon.

This suggests that something remained of the old hypothesis of placing both kingdomsSicily and Sardiniaunder the rule of the prince in order to establish a strategic connection between the two western Mediterranean islands to support defensive measures against the Turks.

What is certain is that soon after, when the Council of Italy was constituted in , those ideas fell into disfavor and Sardinia was not detached from the Aragonese crown. This may have been a small comfort to the Catalans, who were irritated by the formation of the Council;17 or, it may have been simply a last-minute afterthought before the provisions for the administrative rationalization of the crowns Mediterranean holdings were put into eect.

Madrid, , In the emperors abdication prompted a serious institutional crisis when the Aragonese and the Catalans refused to recognize the new sovereign unless Philip II agreed to swear the expected constitutional oath. Still, the records show that on a variety of occasions he paid particular attention to the island in recognition of its conformidad literally, conformity, in the sense of acquiescence to the Catalan-Aragonese tradition.

On several occasions Philip guaranteed the indissolubility of the island kingdom from the Aragonese crown and prevented Sardinia from being ceded in exchange for other dominions. The fact that Sardinians saw themselves in the Catalan-Aragonese nation is a self-identity based on collective sentiment as well as on juridical privileges. The monarchy could not possibly neglect taking that fact into account. It is not by chance that the instructions given to the new viceroy of Sardinia by Philip II in contain a reminder to govern in observance of the order and the form that has been customary of the viceroys of the past, which is moreover in conformity with the style and custom in Catalonia.

Ernest Belenguer Cebri, 4 vols. The principle of conformidad is mentioned repeatedly and permeates the institutions, the common law, the language, the customs, and the culture of both nobles and commoners.

This did not prevent the introduction of a few corrective measures in the institutional organization of the kingdom when the system of territorial Councils was developed. Between and the process of modernization of Sardinian institutions, begun in the age of Ferdinand the Catholic, concluded with the establishment, rst of a Treasury of the Kingdom independent from the Tresoreria General of Aragon, and then, immediately after, of the Sardininan tribunal of the Audiencia.

The Audienciaa collegial body composed largely of jurists letrados and headed by a regente real cancillera took its place beside the viceroy in the political and juridical governance of the Kingdom. The administrative rationalization imposed by the Audiencia is particularly evident in the management of taxation and of the royal land-holdings, in the supervision of relations with the holders of local ocios, and, in the judicial sector, in regulating the many jurisdictions.

At the same time, bringing Sardinia within the council system encouraged its denitive insertion within the political and administrative structure of the monarchy and imposed the primacy of the royal power over a particularism of municipalities and lords that was strong in Sardinian society. In substance, the elites ended up accepting the rules of the centralist government, imposed with bureaucratic rmness before the establishment of absolutism under Philip II.

Barcelona, , ; 2d. During the latter half of the sixteenth century, the state, in its various articulations, denitively imposed its benecent presence on Sardinian society. The problem of how to involve the Sardinian upper classes in the management of public aairs remained unresolved, however.
