Grossmont College Roles of Craft Guilds in Pre Renaissance Economies Discussion

In Pre-Renaissance times GUILDS controlled the creation of arts and crafts. 

Module TWO  touched on the role of ARTISANS in the service of an elite class who could afford to commission objects and crafts.

After reading the content module two,  and doing your own independent research,  I'd like to know your views role of the craft guilds.

In your opinion, do you think the GUILDS helped the growth of local economies, 

improve the lives of guild members and the social fabric of their communities by securing wages and contracts,

or did GUILDS restrict innovation by imposing regulations and limiting competition?

OK, Some things to consider when you try to frame your answer:

  • What was the original purpose of the guilds?
  • What was the job of an apprentice?
  • What was the job of a journeyman?
  • Why did the guilds want to control the price of goods?
  • Prior to GUILDS,  Did artisans have any power,  were artisans just slaves in ancient times or valued master artists and craftsmen serving the elite monied class, priests and autocracies?
  • Why did guilds wish to reduce or eliminate competition?
  • Why did the guilds wish to standardize the quality of goods?
  • In what ways were  GUILDS restrictive in regards to Who could be allowed into the GUILD?
