This chapter focuses on count-king of the Crown of Aragon, King Martí; in particular how his personality and religious proclivities permeated the culture of his court and represented a distinct shift from the intellectual pursuits and administrative approaches of his older brother, Joan I. Within medieval reckoning, the positions in support for or against occult matters were contested hotly and in continual flux. Martí, who operated within this intellectual system, could not completely escape this tension over the occult. However, in contrast to his father's and elder brother's interest in the occult, Martí appeared to be more aligned with those principles that took a more hostile view of the disciplines. Martí's approach was thus considerably different from Joan's. Also unlike Joan, Martí had no smooth transition to the throne of the Crown of Aragon.
