Con el presente trabajo pretendemos adentrarnos en los orígenes de las operaciones comerciales de seguro centrándonos en el transporte por mar, con un afán de continuidad temporal desde su inicio hasta la promulgación de las “Ordenanzas sobre Seguros Marítimos de Barcelona”. Para ello en un primer momento analizaremos la forma clásica romana de aseguración , el “foenus nauticum” analizándolo como una operación de préstamo, deteniéndonos en sus características financieras, para después pasar al “préstamo a la gruesa” como una forma evolucionada que intentaba responder a las necesidades del siglo XII.
