Del censal al debitori: continuïtats i transformacions en el crèdit hipotecari català en l’etapa final de l’Antic Règim (regions de Barcelona i Girona, 1768-1840)

The objective of this report is to study causes and consequences of substituting annuity for obligation in the final period of the Ancient Regime in Catalonia (1768-1840), affording special attention to the regions of Barcelona and of Girona, given that they represent two contrasting socioeconomic models. To this object the public mortgage registry, created in Catalonia in 1768, has been mostly used, although other complementary sources, like land registry (cadastre) and the family archives, have been considered to increase the chronological framework with the aim of estimating the impact over the 1750 "Pragmàtica" annuity market and the consequences of the Spanish "Desamortitzacions" and other legal measures during the 19th century. The purpose is then the study of credit during the Ancient Regime from a point of view different to the traditionally used, given that by means of the public mortgage registry a wider view of the mortgage markets as well as that of the participating social groups can be achieved ​
