Lluch Bramon, Rosa
MetadataShow full item record
Becoming wealthy in the Middle Ages was as viable as in any other period of history. However, the feudal system imposed many limitations, especially on those who did not belong to the privileged elites. My goal in this paper will be to point out and analyse one of the strategies of enrichment used by the remences, unfree peasants, of Old Catalonia during the 14th and 15th centuries: leasing the collection of seigneurial rents.
