The project aims to investigate the role of fiscal assets at the time when different subjects (monasteries, cathedral chapters, bishops and the aristocracy of the kingdom) became entangled in complex disputes over their ownership. These conflicts become particularly noticeable in the documentary evidence in the 12th century when new political actors, namely urban and rural communities, start laying claim to the exploitation of these resources, often but not always, associated with claims on bishops’ endowments and urban chapters. The 12th century is a crucial moment, even from a documentary standpoint, because it was precisely on the occasion of the court cases surrounding such conflicts that several dossiers were created, combining original documents and numerous copies of royal decrees and placita from the 8th-10th centuries. This rich production of documents went hand in hand with an often radical redefinition of the ownership of royal estates and of the rights associated with them.
