Abstract

This session intends to explore three case-studies of inventories produced between the 14th and 16th centuries in three different contexts (a military order, a former eremitic settlement and a powerful monastery of regular canons of St. Augustine). Within distinct contexts, these written records enable us to understand the different intentions presiding their production and to ascertain how their content can reflect specific characteristics of each of these orders.
