Abstract

The history of Carolingian Aquitaine has been largely renewed in recent years. This session will question the materiality of networks and sources in this vast area. Martin Gravel will examine the political role of ‘duke’ William of Aquitaine regarding the young Louis the Pious from the perspective of recent trends in the political history of the period. Julien Bellarbre will show how the monks of Noirmoutier shared historical manuscripts with other religious communities, while they were trying to escape the Vikings raids, thus encouraging the development of a new historiographical tradition in Aquitaine. Adrien Bayard will analyse the monetary production of this region, and in doing so, will reconsider the relations between Charles the Bald and his nephew Pippin II of Aquitaine. Camille Gorin will examine waterways and terrestrial routes of the city of Poitiers in Aquitaine, in order to delineate their impacts on the city’s internal structure, as well as its position within the regional urban network.
