[peisanteté] (s.xiii3/3)

[ gdw]

[ FEW: *8,191a pensare; Gdf: ; GdfC: ; TL: ; DEAF:  peser (pesanteté); DMF:  pesanteté; TLF: ; OED: ; MED: ; DMLBS: ]

This term is not attested elsewhere, but seems plausible as the product of the adjective peisant1 followed by a - suffix, comparable to peisantie. Alternatively, the word may be a misreading of pesantece, which would make it a variant spelling of the equally rare peisantesce.
