The historiography on the revolt of the Ciompi is vast, international, and, more than other revolts documented above, divided. On the one hand, Gene Brucker, 1 Sergio Bertelli, 2 Mollat and Wolff, 3 and Raymond de Roover 4 have judged these insurgents as possessing little ‘social cohesion’ or class consciousness; their revolt arose

Italy, France, and Flanders

This book is comprised of over 200 translated sources related to popular protest in Italy, France and Flanders from 1245 to 1424 . In particular, it focuses on the ‘contagion of rebellion' from 1355 to 1382 that followed in the wake of the plague. They comprise a diversity of sources and cover a variety of forms of popular protest in different social, political and economic settings. Their authors range across a wide political and intellectual horizon and include revolutionaries, the artistocracy, merchants and representatives from the church. They tell gripping and often gruesome stories of personal and collective violence, anguish, anger, terror, bravery, and foolishness. The book documents the best-known revolt in France before the French Revolution, the Jacquerie. The book also focuses on the best known of the urban revolts of the fourteenth century, the Revolt of the Ciompi, which set off with a constitutional conflict in June 1378. It then views the 'cluster of revolts' of northern France and Flanders, 1378 to 1382, concentrating on the most important of these, the tax revolts of the Harelle in Rouen and the Maillotins or hammer men in Paris. It looks beyond the 'cluster' to the early fifteenth century.

social and political consequences of the Black Death? With Dobson’s collection as my model, I began with the idea of concentrating on the principal sources for the best known of the continental revolts before the Peasants’ War in Germany 1524–25 – the French Jacquerie of 1358, the Florentine Revolt of the Ciompi, and the Czech revolt of the Hussites from around 1412 almost to mid-century. It

chroniclers. 13 Because of the Revolt of the Ciompi, historians have paid greater attention to popular revolt in Florence than anywhere else in Italy. Insurrections, however, were as numerous if not more so in other regions of central Italy during the last years of the 1350s to the 1370s. These included tax revolts [73, 74] , insurrections of artisans and workers in the wool

the city seen in the revolts of the Ciompi; see [121; 25 August 1378]. 31 Built between 1218 and 1220, it was the second bridge over the Arno; it lay to the west after Ponte Vecchio; in 1252, a third bridge, Santa Trinita was built between the two; see Giovanni Villani, Nuova Cronica , I, pp. 272–3, and

but for all of Europe. Yet, as we have seen, in terms of its timing, the Revolt of the Ciompi was the exception in Italy. Even in France, there were two clusters; one for the south in the last years of Charles V’s reign (1378–80), another for the north with the crowning of Charles VI and his urgent need to replenish his war chest (1380–2). Secondly, Mollat and Wolff have
