The article aims to cover a twofold historical void: on the one hand, to inform on the power relations within the ecclesiastic class, specifically between the canons and the beneficiaries, focused on the basilica of the See of Manresa, and the position that the Bishop of Vic took in this conflict. Secondly, to shed more light on the politicisation of the Catalan clergy during the Napoleonic War, as well as analyse it within the setting of the unequal power relations present within that religious community in a crumbling conjuncture of the Ancien Régime which the war accelerated and revealed with all its harshness.
