Medieval Studies
Social Mobility in Medieval Italy (1100-1500)
by Frederik Buylaert, Sam Geens, David Igual Luis, Isabella Lazzarini, Jean-Claude Maire Vigueur, François Menant, Giuliano Milani, Pierre Monnet, Giuseppe Petralia, Alma Poloni, Olivetta Schena, Sandro Carocci, Francesco Senatore, Alessandro Silvestri, Lorenzo Tanzini, Pierluigi Terenzi, Sergio Tognetti, Simone M. Collavini, Maria Elena Cortese, Bianca De Divitiis, Massimo Della Misericordia, Christopher Dyer, Serena Ferente and Andrea Gamberini and edited by Sandro Carocci and Isabella Lazzarini
This volume aims to investigate the complex theme of social mobility in medieval Italy both by comparing Italian research to contemporary international studies in various European contexts, and by analysing a broad range of themes and specific case studies. Medieval social mobility as a European phenomenon, in fact, still awaits a systematic analysis, and has seldom been investigated iuxta propria principia in social, political and economic history.

The essays in the book deal with a number of crucial problems: how is social mobility investigated in European and Mediterranean contexts? How did classic mobility channels such as the Church, officialdom, trade, the law, the lordship or diplomacy contribute to shaping the many variables at play in late medieval societies, and to changing - and challenging - inequality? How did movements and changes in social spaces become visible, and what were their markers? What were the dynamics at the heart of the processes of social mobility in the many territorial contexts of the Italian peninsula?
