Abstract

The Tractat de les eleccions (“Treatise on elections”) is a short text dedicated to Pere the Ceremonious, King of Aragon, on the branch of astrology focused on determining the moments best suited to performing an action. It is the only one of the three brief astrological treatises written in Catalan by Bartomeu de Tresbens that is fully conserved, in a unique manuscript, apart from the long Llibre de les nativitats. In this article an edition of the Tractat de les eleccions is given, preceded by a study of its dating, its situation in the manuscript, its contents and its sources.
