Description

This session wants to bring specialists of, and perspectives on, liturgical, political and socio-cultural history of the Middle Age closer together. Papers will investigate mutually influencing relations between liturgical and socio-political practices, by focusing on 'Conflict' as an analytical category of human interaction.

The first paper will discuss how exactly bishop Bruno of Toul (later Pope Leo IX) used liturgy as a tool of episcopal authority and conflict resolution in a struggle with the abbey of Moyenmoutier. The second paper will show through a case study how the extant sources for the Old Hispanic rite portray this liturgy as an heritage that was faithfully transmitted despite the differences between the contexts in which it was observed. The third paper will show, through the analysis of sacralising prayers for rulers in the Roman Canon of the Mass, how followers of the eleventh-century Church reform had complex views on the position of an anointed ruler.

In this manner the session wants to stimulate a more active collaboration between different disciplines, which is the mission of PSALM, a starting research network dedicated to studying the interaction and overlap between Politics, Society And Liturgy in the Middle Ages.
