La catalogne autour de 1100.

Abstract : The Arabian graphic signs of the sealing ring of Ermessende de Carcassonne, the marriage of her son officiated by Mundir, Emir of Saragossa, the correspondance of her daughter-in-law Almodis de la Marche with the Emir of Denia or the marriage of Maria Roderic, the Cid's daughter, with Raimon Berenger III, stage, through the women, the relations that the Catalans are keeping up in 1100, with Islam.They passed, indeed, from a peacefull coexistence, or even from a steady alliance to fight against co-religionists, with an open hostility. In 1148, with the conquest of Tortosa, the territory of Catalonia increased more than twice, and this geographical expansion accompanies an identitary affirmation of catalanity. To struggle against Almoravides, the Count of Barcelona leans on the Crusade ideology, supported by the papal legates, even when his peninsular neighbours rather gain the Visigotic heritage with the notions of "destruction-restauration" of the Hispania. It's altogether the new way of collaboration to the war, with its ideological prolongements which appears as the determining element of the relations between Christendom and Islam, in Catalonia.
