Georges Duby și economia rurală în Evul Mediu occidental


Georges Duby and the rural economy in Western Middle Ages

The contrast between advanced urban economy of the Islam and the backward rural Western European economy during Early Middle Ages is sharp. Whereas Islam covers the large part of the known world, bridging up Western Africa, the Mediterranean Sea, the Middle East and the Indian Ocean, the Western economy retrenches inside ancient city walls and in rural, remote areas. While Muslim cities prosper due to large scale trade, the Western towns and villages thrive to survive the shrinking economy, heading towards autarchy. One of the most important actors of the economic take-off of the late Middle Ages in Western Europe are to be found among various abbeys, which manage to reconnect the former trade roads and to supply with coins the pale rural economy.
Keywords: Middle Ages, Western Europe, rural economy, abbeys.
