The inventory transcribed here was made in March of 1483 [1484 by our calendar] by a cleric named Jehan Verne, working for the mayor's office for the city of Dijon. Beginning in the room of the "governor" of Petit Clairvaux, the title given to the Cistercian with authority over the enclave and its many houses, vineyards, and storerooms, this document takes us on a tour of an interior filled with signs of wealth and the various kinds of work that range well beyond that normally associated with a religious house, or with the wine trade, including fine furnishings and linens, a barber's chair, an iron clock, and several painted or woven images of the Virgin Mary.
