Consequently, the main part of the town was in the hands of ecclesiastics who controlled three of the four important poles of population and three of the four main jurisdictions of the city. This power of the ecclesiastical people, especially of the cathedral chapter, had important effects on the development of municipal institutions in particular: no doubt the opposition of both the abbeys and the cathedral chapter played a crucial role in the fact that municipal institutions were not established in Autun before the last quarter of the XVth century, which indeed is very late
