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, religious institutions and the surrounding realms of Burgundy. The papers which examine on a broad scale reform and renewal in Burgundy range from the Carolingian Empire up to the beginning of the High Middle Ages.
