From 30 March to 30 June 2023, the exhibition Fairs, Towns and Merchants (1350-1600) presents the CoMOR research programme 'Configuring European Fairs. Merchants, Objects, Routes (1350-1600) (UMR 5648 CIHAM, ENS Lyon, University of Erfurt) funded by the ANR in France and the DFG in Germany. Through various archival documents (maps, account books, fair calendars, municipal deliberations, etc.) and period objects (paintings, drawings, coins, abacus, city weights, etc.), the entire history of European fairs is traced, from the Champagne cycle to the emergence of exchange fairs, including the success of fairs in Lyon. Organised with the Departmental and Metropolitan Archives, this exhibition is supported by the Lyon Municipal Archives, the Lyon Museum of Fine Arts and the Gadagne Museum of History.
