Abstract :
[en] Since the so-called Letter of Liberty of 1244, the burghers of Luxembourg had the duty to defend their town and to go to war with their lord. This contribution examines, based predominantly on medieval account books, what concrete tasks this duty entailed. It distinguishes between the construction and maintenance of the city walls, the required services asked of the village dwellers, the sentry duty of the inhabitants, personal arms of the denizens and heavy weaponry of the municipality, concrete war preparations and actual military campaigns. The assessment of empirical historical evidence allows not only to calculate the costs of these military ventures but also to provide a rather detailed evaluation of the technological state of development of the artillery in the 14th to 15th century.
