Catalans de França o francesos de Catalunya? La identitat abans i després del tractat dels Pirineus (1659)

The concept of state border is contemporary. Dictionaries and other sources of the early modern period show that 'border' was synonym of jurisdiction at the time and that this was or could be of quite different scales: from a mere parish to an entire monarchy. Within this jurisdictional frame, it were above all the corresponding privileges which gave cohesion and collective identity to groups and people. This why the Treaty of the Pyrenees (1659) did not change much or at all the Catalan perception of people fromthe Roussillon and the French Cerdagne who, still at the eve of the French Revolution, continued to consider themselves Catalan subjects of the king of France ​
