Description

The session will examine the multiple and complex links between the Church and urban civil authorities, in order to determine how Church took part of the government of the city after the bishop had lost the better part of his prerogatives in that matter (from the 10th century and on). More broadly, the aim would be to address the problem of the cooperation or rivalry between those two institutionnal entities. In this perspective, the Church will be apprehended as a whole, in its different manifestations : her staff, her institutions, her rights, properties and jurisdictions. Several aspects and topics will be investigated : the transfer of “personnel”, of normative models and administrative practices from one sphere to another ; jurisdictional issues ; rivalry or disputes relating to the control of certain areas or over certain institutions.
