The Growth of Papal Government in the Middle Ages

£14.99

Product description

This learned and extremely well documented work shows how the medieval papacy grew from modest beginnings into an impressive institution in the Middle Ages. The author's command of the sources enables him to show the ideas upon which the medieval papacy worked, to set familiar events in a new perspective, and to put the ever attractive question of Church and State into its proper historical background.
The book covers a wide field. It deals with the history of the papacy and its relations to East and West from the fourth to the twelfth centuries, embraces such varied subjects as law, finance, diplomacy, liturgy, theology, etc., and makes full use of the latest results of historical research. Due attention is paid to the development of medieval symbolism and to the views of eminent political scientists of the period. The combination of these many topics results in a novel synthesis and makes the book appeal not only to the general historian, but also to the Church historian and historian of political thought.
For this second edition recent developments and results of research are included in an appendix with close references to the text.
