Abstract

The news of the surrender of Barcelona and the subsequent end of the war in Catalonia reached Naples in a unique political and social context. The viceroy at the time, the Count of Oñate, energetically approached the task of restoring normality in a kingdom that was disrupted by the revolt from 1647-1648, and in doing so he found himself in conflict with various figures, in particular the Cardinal and Archbishop of Naples, Ascanio Filomarino. On the other hand, the connections between the kingdom and Catalonia had been assiduous in the previous years, and a unique personality like Alexandre Ros i Gomar, Catalan but sided with the loyalists, had lived in Naples. This paper proposes an analysis of how the news of the end of the siege of Barcelona had political repercussions on the Neapolitan political scene, on the conflict in course between viceroy and archbishop and more generally, on the debate surrounding the responsibility of the revolt of 1647-1648, destined to last in the years that followed.
