The Long Arm of Papal Authority

Late Medieval Christian Peripheries and Their Communication with the Holy See

 

The Editors
Gerhard Jaritz is a member of the International Medieval Congress (Leeds Programming Committee) and is a Professor in the Medieval Studies Department at Central European University.
Kirsi Salonen is the author of "The Penitentiary as a Well of Grace in the Late Middle Ages: The Example of the Province of Uppsala 1448-1527"
Torsten Jorgensen is Professor at the Centre for Medieval Studies at University of Bergen

The volume contains selected papers from two conferences in 2003, at the University of Bergen (Norway) and at Central European University in Budapest. They deal comparatively with the communication of the Holy See with Northern Europe and Eastern Central Europe in the Late Middle Ages, both areas at the margins of Western Christendom. Special emphasis is placed on analysis of registers in the Apostolic Penitentiary.
