Cities in History: Archives and Traces, 1100 –1700. One of three major new IMEMS research strands sponsored by Joanna Barker.

Cities in History: Archives and Traces, 1100 –1700

Key investigators: Dr Adrian Green, Dr Christian Liddy, Professor Graeme Small, Professor Andy Wood. Project Researcher: Dr Andy Burn The Cities project at Durham seeks to capture the complexity and vitality of the urban experience in the medieval and early modern world through the documentary, visual and material culture generated by and about cities between 1100 and 1700. At the heart of the project is this site, which will serve as an ever-expanding scholarly resource for researchers and teachers, and which will make available a range of images and transcriptions of key urban documents and objects, alongside scholarly commentary and debate. It will be of use to those interested in the history of a single city, but its strongly thematic structure is designed to encourage comparative urban studies.

As the project grows more information will be added to this site. TextGarden. The Princeton Geniza Project of the Department of Near Eastern Studies at Princeton University seeks to extend the methodologies available to Hebrew and Arabic scholars working with the documents found in the Geniza chamber of the Ben Ezra Synagogue in Cairo in the late 19th century.


The project is dedicated to transcribing documents from film copies to computer files, creating a full text retrieval text-base of transcribed documents, developing new tools such as dictionaries, semantic categories and morphological aids to further the study of Geniza texts. The project is committed to disseminating its materials as widely as possible to the international community of scholars with an interest in the life of the medieval Middle East, as well as to all with an interest in Judaica. It is our hope that by making materials from this very esoteric field widely available that new insights can be gained into the interaction of the peoples of the Middle East in past time.

The BRITISH HISTORIC TOWNS ATLAS. Medieval English urban history - Norwich - Map. Leids Patriciaat tot 1420. A great age of Confraternities? Three score and ten years ago, the eminent French historian, Gabriel Le Bras – who was also a canonist and sociologist of religious practice – described the thirteenth and seventeenth centuries as the two great ages of confraternities.

A great age of Confraternities?

Since Le Bras and his disciples were mostly medievalists, their attention focussed on the first of those ‘great ages’, which they gradually expanded, partly in order to understand how confraternities responded to the conditions that followed the Black Death. They viewed confraternities, especially those based on the professions within towns, as the social, associative, political and even religious ‘cement’ which structured the populations, giving a sense of identity and coherence to a wide range of occupational groups.

But the second of Le Bras’s ‘great ages’ has attracted much less attention, perhaps because it prompted no grand hypothesis that would explain their recovery and expansion after another acute crisis, the Protestant reformations.
