Abstract :
Studies the phenomenon of 'bastides' - new towns founded by Cistercian abbeys in partnership with secular authorities in southwestern France. These towns were founded ca.1250-1325, and were part of a larger movement of town foundation undertaken in the southwest by Alphonse of Poitiers, Philip III and Philip IV, who were attempting to assert a royal presence, or by Edward I and local counts attempting to assert their rights in opposition to royal encroachments. An appendix lists abbeys founding bastides in order of wealth. ;
