The introduction deals with the topics examined in the monographic section in the context of some recent research on the circulation and social mobility of the élites in the Early Modern Europe. Opportunities were offered to élites both by marriage or patronage ties, and by commercial and credit networks. Through the analysis of the essays, the introduction reflects on individual or family mobility processes with the aim of explaining opportunities for change, paths of social ascent and deeper changes. The cases considered concern the Italian states, the Spanish and French monarchies and wider perspectives, with particular attention to those who turned to Eastern Europe. Important is the reflection on the periodization which must also take into account the opportunities that could open up to individuals at different times. The collected essays therefore provide indications of great interest to read the processes of social mobility in the light of some paths of circulation of élites members in the early modern age.

Abstract

The introduction deals with the topics examined in the monographic section in the context of some recent research on the circulation and social mobility of the élites in the Early Modern Europe. Opportunities were offered to élites both by marriage or patronage ties, and by commercial and credit networks. Through the analysis of the essays, the introduction reflects on individual or family mobility processes with the aim of explaining opportunities for change, paths of social ascent and deeper changes. The cases considered concern the Italian states, the Spanish and French monarchies and wider perspectives, with particular attention to those who turned to Eastern Europe. Important is the reflection on the periodization which must also take into account the opportunities that could open up to individuals at different times. The collected essays therefore provide indications of great interest to read the processes of social mobility in the light of some paths of circulation of élites members in the early modern age.
