The Manual Digest ~ 1748

Up Catalog

     Andorra is a small principality on the border between Spain and Farnce. In 1278 the Bishop of Seo de Urgel and the Counts of Foix ruled Andorra as a condominium (the counts have been replaced by the French president.) In 1933 a constitution was adopted and power was transferred to the Andorran General Council.
     The Manual Digest was written by Anton Fiter y Rossell in 1748 in order to preserve the traditions of his homeland. The book contains history, laws, religion, as well as customs, manners and dress. The book is still a  record of the Andorran way of life, and many of the customs continue to be practiced.
