El Torrejó acoge este miércoles la presentación de un libro sobre el señorío de Bernat de Sarrià

The Municipal Center of Torrejó will host this Wednesday, June 12, the presentation of the book 'Formation and Decline of the State of Bernat de Sarrià in the Kingdom of Valencia. (End of the 13th century - 1335)' written by José Vicente Cabezuelo Pliego, professor of Medieval History at the University of Alicante. The Councilor for Culture of the Benidorm City Council, Jaime Jesús Pérez, has announced that the presentation of this work will take place on the fifth floor of this building, starting at 8 p.m., and that admission is free until capacity is reached.

The book will be presented by Juan Francisco Jiménez Alcázar, professor of Medieval History at the University of Murcia and president of the Spanish Society of Medieval Studies, who together with the author will also make a profile of both the work and its protagonist, the Valencian nobleman Bernat from Sarrià.

The study analyzes the construction of the Bernat de Sarrià manor, the conflicts with the neighbourhood, the rampant indebtedness of the noble's treasury and the process of transferring the domain to the aforementioned infant through a series of instruments and financial managers that allow it and they supervise. The legal transition of the lordship from one lord to another offers a geohistorical map of the region known then as Montanea Valencia – the current Marinas – of undoubted wealth, allowing the identification and location of a large number of farmhouses and castles, as well as a more exact knowledge of the organization of settlement, cultivation spaces and taxation. Likewise, through the documentation consulted, traces of the psychological and human profile of the character that is the subject of this book are inferred and revealed about intelligence, skills, attitudes and behavioural patterns.

Jaime Jesús Pérez has stated that the content of this book may be “very interesting, taking into account the relevance of the figure of Bernat de Sarrià in the history of our region and, especially, of our municipality”, remembering that it was he “who “He granted the Charter of Population and, therefore, led to the founding of the first Benidorm.” For this reason, the mayor has invited citizens to "come to Torrejó and participate in the presentation, since they will undoubtedly have the possibility of continuing to expand their knowledge" about this character.
