Montichiara, Francesca (2017) La Condizione della donna nella Sardegna giudicale alla luce dei condaghi. Doctoral Thesis.
This study analyzes the status and role of women in medieval Sardinia between XI and XIII century. Women have been considered in different contexts: within the family and outside the domestic sphere, and about their legal rights and economic conditions. These topics have been studied in relation to different social groups, in territorial and diachronic way, highlighting their features in each of the Sardinian kingdoms (giudicati). The main historical sources are the condaghes, collections of administrative documents of Sardinian monasteries and other ecclesiastical or secular institutions. Every record (scheda) in which women appeared (donation, inheritance, purchase, transaction and litigation) has been classified and analyzed to provide a profile of queens and princesses (donnikellas), to describe the characteristics of free aristocratic and not‑aristocratic women, and to understand the conditions of female servants living under the authority of secular or ecclesiastical owners.
