Abstract

The study of historical networks requires to analyse the relationships between different kind of agents (physical persons and corporate bodies) and objects situated in a spatialized environment. The first session on 'People, Organisations, and Space as Network Components' will be devoted to networks of persons and organisations in Burgundy (10th-13th c.). Rosé will focus on methodological issues in applying network analysis to address the question of biographies in the 10th c. for an abbot and a queen. Deflou-Leca analyses the monasteries and the spatial development of networks of dependencies in Northern Burgundy (dioceses of Langres, Auxerre et Autun). From spatial organisation to concurrence, monastic dependencies are interconnected and created in connection with internal reforms. Analysing the cartulary of the Cistercian abbey of Bellevaux, Corriol identifies which mediators (persons and institutions) are recurring to for arbitration and explores the network of preferential links.
