Solo Madrid es corte è il nome del portale dell’omonima rete di ricerca costituiti da docenti universitari dell’istituto storico “La Corte en Europa” dell’Universidad Autónoma de Madrid a cui si è aggiunto un altro gruppo di ricercatori del progetto “Dynamic Complexity of Cooperation-Based Self-Organizing Comercial Networks in First Global Age”, del programma europeo EUROCORES.
The model and structure that forms the backbone of our interdisciplinary research is the Court, which emerged as a power in the late Middle Ages, allowing the emergence of new political and cultural forms other than those of the Middle Ages. The current vitality of studies on the Court reflects its relevance in the transformation experienced by European society since the Low Middle Ages to recent times. The European Court of the monarchy reached an indisputable political prominence that characterized the complex societies of the Old Regime. Since the Court, the monarchs not only politically articulated their kingdoms, but also conducted a process of transformation of values and way of life that assimilated the dominant groups in Europe. The ceremonial good manners, etiquette, the art of observation and were concealing the social patterns of political behaviour and social generation, have survived, despite its evolution, as forms of power and characteristics of good education to today. In the Spanish case, the model takes on added significance courtier to be a complex element that established the Hispanic Monarchy during the Modern Age and distributed through a common culture in many respects.
