Synopsis: Setting out to redress the balance of history in favour of the peasants, this book argues that the lives of peasants - the vast majority of the population in medieval Europe - were just as complex and interesting as those of the nobility. Rosener first considers the social, economic and political foundations of peasant life, particularly how the occupational and land divisions determined the relative freedom of the rural population. He continues by illustrating how at the height of the Middle Ages, the peasant condition improved as tenant farming was introduced and progress in agricultural technology increased productivity. The study tells of the successful peasants who owned land and begun to form "peasant republics" independent of the nobility. As the peasant population swelled, economic and ecological concerns increased in importance for all such groups, living as communities deriving their living from the soil.

Book Description Polity Press, United Kingdom, 1996. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. This book sets out to redress the balance of history in favor of the peasants. Reminding us that peasants made up the vast majority of the population in medieval Europe, Roumlsener s research illustrates that their lives were just as complex and interesting as those of the nobility. Roumlsener first considers the social, economic and political foundations of peasant life, in particular how occupational and land divisions determined the relative freedom of the rural population. At the height of the Middle Ages, the peasant condition improved as the seigneurial system was gradually replaced by tenant farming and progress in agricultural technology increased productivity. Peasant colonists now left overcrowded villages to farm less fertile or barely populated terrains. Forms of village settlement diversified and relationships among the peasants developed into more complex communal networks. Changes were also apparent in the quality and variety of clothing and the design of farmhouses and farmyards. The author also sheds new light on successful peasants who owned land and began to form peasant republics independent of the nobility. As the peasant population swelled, however, economic and ecological concerns became of vital importance to a community which derived its living from the soil. This book is a lively refutation of those preconceptions which see peasant existence either as a rural idyll or a life of unmitigated oppression and poverty. Roumlsener s detailed study has unearthed a rich peasant culture which flourished alongside and was frequently in conflict with the medieval nobility. Peasants in the Middle Ages will be welcomed by historians of medieval Europe and by sociologists and anthropologists interested in the Middle Ages or comparative studies.
