This historical study of the village of Lournand in the year 1000 and its transition from antiquity to feudalism, is based upon detailed research into documents and sources of the time. The author also poses questions, such as, who held the leading role, the free peasantry or the abbey of Cluny?; would it not be helpful if, by using all the means we have today to identify more reliable filiations and marriage alliances, we could examine a wider area of the structure of the ruling class, the strata which composed it, the antagonisms which divided it and the solidarities which gave it its strength; and, was the relationship between feudalism and the opening up of the market so simple? These and other questions, not only enliven the text of this book but also open up other avenues for further research.
