Culture gives Mula a historical document recovered by the Civil Guard after its authentication (09/05/2018)

The Ministry of Tourism and Culture gave the City Council of Mula a historical document of the municipality that, after being recovered by the Civil Guard, was studied in the General Archive to determine its authenticity and class.

The event was attended by the General Director of Cultural Assets, Juan Antonio Lorca;

the mayor of Mula, Juan Jesús Moreno, and representatives of the Civil Guard, who gave an account of the operation and revealed some details of the document.

This is the 'Transfer of the population deed of Mula', a document of 1581 that agents seized after finding it for sale on the Internet.

"An operation that adds to the numerous actions carried out by the forces and security bodies of the State in collaboration with Culture and that are allowing to recover thousands of objects of historical, archaeological, artistic and documentary value, as well as work in the disarticulation of networks and in the imposition of sanctions, "explained Lorca.

He added that "this fluid and constant collaboration has given rise in the Region of Murcia to a large increase in control and monitoring actions, to which we must also add a greater awareness of the importance of our heritage by citizens, who collaborate actively in many of these operations ".

The technicians of the General Archive, after a detailed study, confirm that the 'Transfer of the deed of population' of 1581 is an original and authentic document, of a public nature, emanated from the Council of the Villa de Mula by order of its mayor, signed and validated by his scribe and kept in the ark of the three keys or municipal file.

It is also part of the documentary heritage of the Region and, based on the protection granted by law, must remain in the Municipal Archive.

The person in charge of Cultural Assets, also, highlighted "the excellent work carried out from the General Archive for the conservation of the rich documentary heritage of the Region, essential when it comes to knowing our history and sometimes unfairly set aside".

Therefore, it will also be especially present in the activities that, on the occasion of the European Year of Cultural Heritage, have been organized by the regional government, through the conference 'The photographic heritage at the digital crossroads' to be held in June in this space.

The document

The support of the 'Transfer of the writing of population of Mule' is a booklet of ten sheets of craft paper in which the puntizones and corondeles are appreciated, sewn with followed seam and dyed thread.

The central leaves (from four to seven) are written on both sides, the rest being 'courtesy sheets', which were used to protect the writing.

The parchment binding, characteristic of the sixteenth century, shows the interest of the Mula Council in its preservation.

The dimensions of the document are 31.3 x 22 cm.

and its content makes clear from the beginning the importance of the writing of population for the town of Mula.

The alderman bases his transfer proposal on the deterioration of the original, of 1306. And the deed indicates that the information it contains was written based on oral testimonies of the neighbors to replace the original one, which was badly damaged because it burned in the fire of 1296, during the conquest of Mula by the troops of the King of Aragon.

The document includes the chronicle of the history of Mula, which goes back to the Greeks and Romans (the rebuilding of the castle is mentioned in this period) and indicates the names given to the population who inhabited it until they reached the Muslim Mule.

Special interest are the facts of the conquest by the Infante Alfonso and the knights who accompanied him, with whom the Castilian repopulation begins.
