Periodic Reporting for period 4 - CASTELLANY ACCOUNTS (Record-keeping, fiscal reform, and the rise of institutional accountability in late-medieval Savoy: a source-oriented approach)
Reporting period: 2018-10-01 to 2020-04-30
The correlation between the different types of data of the ‘computi’ – about the local land market and local social competition and conflict, for example – pioneered in the project can similarly be tested against larger data sets in future studies.
The project’s findings have been presented in a session at the International medieval congress, University of Leeds (2018), an international conference on administrative accounting in late-medieval Europe, held at the University of Bucharest (2018), and in a volume edited by the Principal Investigator (‘Accounts and Accountability in Late-Medieval Europe: Records, Procedures, and Socio-Political Impact’, edited by I. Epurescu-Pascovici, Brepols, 2020) as well as a number of articles in international peer-reviewed journals such as ‘Viator: Medieval and Renaissance Studies’ and ‘Comptabilité(S): Revue d’histoire des comptabilités’. The Principal Investigator’s monograph on state and society in late-medieval Savoy will be completed in 2021.
