Description

This session will narrow the focus of the first two sessions in this thread. The importance of bishoprics to lay power meant that lay authority often, perhaps usually, had a role in making a bishop a bishop. But there were other factors, including family connections and ecclesiastical institutions. How these forces played out may be an index of larger medieval developments.
