Abstract

Using both the rich monastic archives and the results of a long archaeological escavation, the article illustrates the history of the village of Villamagna, which is peculiar from several points of view: because in Latium, the tenacious survival of an open village in a world where castras multiplied, imposing themselves more and more exclusively as the main form of organisation of power and population, is strange; and because the society of the Village seems devoid of social diversification, very simple at the level of material culture, and clearly subordinate to monastic power.
