The question of whether it is legitimate to talk about the person of the medieval peasant, has another side. Historians - representatives of community theory, asserting ancestral indissoluble connection with the rural peasant collective, his preoccupation with community-brand, gave a negative answer to this question is a matter of fact. In particular, AI Neusyhin, who wrote about the rural population of the Frankish era, has described it as a commune. Meanwhile, there is no convincing evidence that the peasants of the Early Middle Ages was held in the community of the type which is known from the sources of a later period, with their compulsory crop rotation and the division of areas of grazing on the stubble, and so on. D. Supporters' Markov's theorem "was transferred to the initial period of the Middle Ages those relations and institutions, which are attested documents related to the end of the Middle Ages. The boundary between the early and late phases of the European agrarian history was the internal colonization (X-XII centuries.), And at an early stage, apparently, did not exist any objective or subjective needs of the community in the event orders. In other words, the farmer remained at an early stage, as a rule, the owner of the separate put and who led economy is at your own risk turns into a member of the community in a changing social and economic conditions. I repeat, there is no reason to transfer the characteristics of the rural population, recorded in the later sources for the rural population of an earlier time.
