Llibre del Sindicat Remença (1448)

The Llibre del Sindicat Remença (Peasant Syndicate Book) is a handwritten record in Latin
between 1448 and 1449 containing the proceedings of meetings between serfs (remences) in various Catalan dioceses to select the syndics, who were entrusted with negotiating the abolition of serfdom with the monarchy due to seigneurial abuses. The 1448 Peasant Syndicate was a precedent that expressed the will of serfs from a wide area, which makes it exceptional.
