(p.96) Chapter V History of an Upland Valley
The Hidden Frontier

John W. Cole

University of California Press

This chapter attempts to state past happenings in the Anaunia proper, in order to sketch the historical background of the two communities studied in the field. The precise specification of events in this peripheral area awaits the inquiry of the professional historian, but documents available reveal something of the ways in which human action in the Noce River valley responded to the rhythm of economic and political development in the Tyrol as a whole. The chapter examines the Roman frontier; the bishop and the count; communes; German settlement; peasant revolts; the impact of the Counter-Reformation; the French invasion; the population of St. Felix and Tret; and the impact of nationalism.

Keywords:   Noce River valley, Tyrol, Roman frontier, St. Felix, Tret, nationalism, peasant revolt
