(Updated 29/08/2022)

Editorial Lumen was founded in Burgos in 1936 by the priest and educator Joan Tusquets i Terrats, whose ideology was conservative. Therefore, during the early years this publishing house mostly issued religious works. When Joan Tusquets sold the imprint to a brother of his, this brother in turn transferred it to his daughter Esther, who took over at the helm in 1960 and changed the editorial line to focus it more on literature. Lumen as we know it today was founded in Barcelona in 1960.
