The Three Orders: Feudal Society Imagined

1982 University of Chicago Press trade paperback, 5th printing. Georges Duby (The Early Growth of the European Economy: Warriors and Peasants from the Seventh to the Twelfth Century). In The Three Orders, prominent Annales historian Georges Duby offers a tripartite construct of medieval French society, a construct which depicts men separating themselves hierarchically into those who pray, those who fight, and those who work. He considers how this medieval theory of orders originated, discusses its complex history, and shows how different interests–cultural, political, and economic–were involved in its creation and use. The Three Orders shows how the tripartite schema come to occupy a central position in social thought and clarifies the manner in which feudal society viewed itself.
