De Communi Bono, pro publica utilitate, for the common good, pour l'intérêt de la chose publique.....

the notion of collective interest, borrowing its wording from Roman law, common law or simply from local linguistic customs, occurs reperatedly in certain sources and in certain spaces in late medieval Western Europe.

The frenquent recurrence of this often imprecise phrase has led to a desire to crutinize this notion in tis geographical, chronological politcal and cultural contexts. To be sure, whereas the notion is widely used, it is the epression of very different intentions sustained by a more or less firm and a more or less aincient historical and political consciousness.

Traditionally confined to the sphere of the State and of auctoritas, the phrase the "Common Good" is set to conquer the cities in the late Middle Ages and at the beginnign of the Early Modern period. But how can we compare a kingdom like France where the cities defend their "Common Godd" by making reference to the interest and benefit of the Kingdom with principalities like Flanders where, despite their fierce desire for autonomy, the cities use the notion with much greater reservation than their Italian counterparts ?

The "Common Good" of one group is not that of the others. But the idea of the "Common Godd" refers to a degree of political maturity that we want to evaluate by tracing the intellectual and theoretical roots that have led to the emergence of this notion in the urban world and by analysing the practical forms of its manifestations.
