Abstract: The abbey of La Ferté-sur-Grosne was built in the year 1113. As soon as it was founded, laymen from the neighboring lands seeked the monks’ friendship, whereas monks, as it happened, desired to start erecting their domain. This naturally resulted in exchanges between the two parties. On the one hand, the petty aristocracy gave lands to the monks. On the other hand, the monks offered the laymen prayers that would save their souls. The monks of La Ferté decided to write down most of the stories of how these exchanges came to be made. As of today, historians studied only the texts of those documents, which led them to grant to the written word at the abbey of La Ferté a mostly practical role, associating the action to write to a judicial or memorial purpose meant to protect the acquisition of a land against laymen’s claims. Yet, one needs not only study the contents of such texts. This paper suggests that such documents be studied from the point of view of their production and their preservation. It will study all of the documents produced between 1112 and 1199.
