"The term 'feudal society' is a caricature. It was invented by nineteenth-century historians to capture a particular period in French history, that of the retreat of monarchy (and thus of state authority) and the supposed tyranny of fiefdoms. It had its uses. As caricatures go, it was no worse than many others. But it was both reductionist and unbalanced. Among other things, it reduced society to bonds of dependency that were ritualized and personalized, and it imagined a scenario of quasi-independent castles, each with its own knights, existing in a state of continuous warfare with one another. It largely ignored other links and networks, and it overlooked the fact that warfare between neighbors was intermittent and limited. Meanwhile, in the real world, apart from such conflict-though sometimes through it-social construction was going on."--Dominique Barthélemy In a collection of combative essays, updated for this new translation, Dominique Barthélemy presents a sharply revisionist account of the history of France around the Year 1000. He challenges the view, developed in the enormously influential writings of Georges Duby and others, that France underwent a kind of revolution at the millennium that transformed it into the classic feudal, or seigneurial, society we know from a host of college textbooks. Barthélemy advances his own original views, positing a much more complex and incremental evolution, and maintaining that the post-Carolingian world was more dynamic and creative than Duby and his successors have held. Barthélemy's view requires historians to radically rethink their notions of the history of serfs and nobles, of the so-called Peace of God movements, of the influence (indeed, even the existence) of millenarian fears, and of the nature of the legal system in early medieval Europe. Moreover, it challenges the utility of the term "feudalism" itself, and of our notion that Europe of the High Middle Ages was a "feudal society." Originally published in French under the title "La mutation de l'an mil a-t-elle eu lieu?," this book has generated loud debate on both sides of the Atlantic. In addition to having been revised throughout, the Cornell edition contains a new preface, concluding chapter, and bibliography.… (mais)

A highly engaging work of scholarship. Barthelemy shows the through line from the Carolingian to the 12 century. The gist is regions held on to old structures while adapting to changing circumstances on the ground. The historians of the “feudal transformation” are at fault for beginning the middle of this process instead of looking back. Barthelemy takes deep dives into servitude and nobility and shows the dynamic range of life within both. These dynamic ranges highlight over generalized categories that historians use to paint a picture of endemic violence in the era of “feudal transformation”. This book provides an interesting perspective shift on the origins of European feudalism. ( )

Avant-propos

La «société féodale» est une caricature. C'est un schéma construit par le XIXe siècle pour appréhender rétrospectivement une période de l'histoire de France - celle de l'éclipse des rois (donc de l'Etat) et de la souveraineté tyrannique des fiefs. [...]
Chapitre premier
Une note critique

La «mutation de l'an mil» mérite d'être soigneusement discutée. La réédition du livre de Jean-Pierre Poly et Eric Bournazel, paru pour la première fois en 1980, est une bonne occasion de dire pourquoi le paradigme dominant qu'est devenue la «mutation féodale» doit être remis en cause. [...]
