The article tries to show the evolution of the Faculty of Arts and Philosophy of the University of Barcelona from 1700 to 1717, when it was transferred to Cervera. It is proposed a revision of historiography in order to rethink religious trends and intellectual affiliation of professors. With the new information, a list of professors, including their profiles, is provided, and interpretive keys are provided to understand the intellectual confrontation between Thomists and Suarists.
