This glossary is the continuation of a French-Spanish research program, bringing together two major groups researching medieval taxation, the Joint Research Unit 5648/CIHAM (History and Archaeology of Medieval Christian and Muslim worlds) and the Department of Medieval Studies of the Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas (Institución Milà y Fontanals) in Barcelona.

Thanks to this collaboration, the idea of a critical glossary of Medieval taxation was born and it has two main aims. On the one hand, it intends a first balance of literature appeared in recent decades about taxation and it results in an art reference for both specialists and a wider audience. Ont the other hand, it aims to lay the foundation of a larger comparative history project that allows us to converge knowledge from different countries and to introduce a new dimension - historical semantics - in the study of Medieval taxation.

The result is as follows: an on-line  specialized dictionary that weave together bibliography that is periodically updated as new territories are included in this project.
