Abstract

Reform and renewal has to be seen as symptomatic of Burgundy, as it was ruled by a succession of dynasties that partitioned and reunited the area several times. In a series of lectures, the different kingdoms and systems of rule in Burgundy will be explored by considering continuing traditions as well as reformed, renewed, or completely newly established institutions, ways of communication and relations between rulers and magnates or religious and political institutions. The papers in this first session out of three examine the political, spatial and religious bases of Jurassian Burgundy from the 7th to the 9th century.
