The writing of history is strictly related to the self-perception of a political entity, and its rhetorical construction depends mostly on the public representation of power and on its need to be communicated. The political and cultural evolution of the Catalan Counties during the 10th to the 13th centuries is followed by a similar need of research and reproduction through the writing of a political and familiar past and present. This process, realized on account of the afirmation of the legitimacy of its narration, leads the historiography of 13th-century Catalonia to the recovery of classical models of rhetorical construction and public communication.

La escritura de la historia está estrictamente relacionada con la autopercepción de una entidad política, y su elaboración retórica depende principalmente de la representación pública del poder y de su necesidad de comunicación. La evolución política y cultural de los condados catalanes a lo largo de los siglos X-XIII es seguida por una paralela necesidad de investigación y reproducción mediante la escritura del pasado y del presente político y familiar. Este proceso, realizado desde la afirmación de una legitimidad a su narración, conduce a la historiografia de la Cataluña del siglo XIII a la recuperación de modelos clásicos de elaboración retórica y comunicación pública.
