Abstract

This session is intended to approaching the social, political and economic in the Catalan counties (9th-12th centuries) from a perspective of social history and history of mentalities. We observe that historiographical level, this period has been widely discussed in political and institutional level and are becoming more publications dedicated to the history of lineages and local history. However, missing are studies that propose the analysis of the individual motivations, concerns and actions of those who were part of society. We linked this objective to the theme of IMC 2012, ‘Rules to Follow (or Not)’, to analyzing the difficulties and life experiences that would mean for those people to attach into a society increasingly regulated and with an evolution.
