Ecrit et gestion dans une abbaye de femmes : le cas des cistersiennes du Val-Benoît de Liège (XIIIe-XVe siècle)

Abstract : Though studies on medieval literacy have flourished since the late 20th century, highlighting a “writing revolution” and helping understand entire parts of medieval societies, pragmatic literacy remains rather uncharted territory in monastic - and especially female - communities. Through this case study, our goal will therefore be identifying and explaining writing practices in the Liege Val-Benoît Abbey (for forms, functions and uses), between the 13th and 15th centuries. By looking at the institutionin its context (both regional and Cistercian) and analysing its dense archive (appx. 700 charters & 200 registries), this research work depicts the transition from 13th century juridical writing to a progressively more advanced paper-based accounting system in the 14th and the 15th century.
