Ville et pratiques d'écriture : l'espace d'une communauté à Cavaillon, mi XIIIe - XVe siècle

Abstract : This study reconstructs the history of the urban government of Cavaillon between the mid-13th and the early 15th century from two complementary perspectives : on the one hand, through the building of a territory by the universitas and, on the other hand, through the use of written records in governments and administrative practices. This methodology enables a detailed understanding of the aims and means of assertion of the community and of the processes at work in the social relations which underlie it. The legal recognition of the universitas by its lordship opens towards the possibility of developing a local right, the enforcement of which requires the definition of a territory with set boundaries within the Comtat Venaissin. It is this process which, by associating legislation and records in the framing of a territory, allows the community to develop within the feudal and papal contexts by creating new definitions of social identity.
