This paper examines questions on the circulation of information and the rising of specialists in the provision of credit. Firstly, the social composition of the credit system will be analysed, trying to compare the concentration of loan contracts in Lisbon with other European societies. How information circulated among borrowers and lenders will be in the core of the second section. This approach suggests a credit system characterised by a dispersion in the provision of credit and by mechanisms of inter-personal circulation of information. Specialists providing capital or information did not occupy a relevant position in Lisbon credit market. In the last section of this paper it will be presented some hypotheses to explain these conclusions, which emphasise the differences between Lisbon and other European credit systems
