This book offers perspectives on the legal and intellectual developments of the twelfth century. Gratian's collection of Church law, the Decretum, was a key text in these developments. Compiled in around 1140, it remained a fundamental work throughout and beyond the Middle Ages. Until now, the many mysteries surrounding the creation of the Decretum have remained unsolved, thereby hampering exploration of the jurisprudential renaissance of the twelfth century. Professor Winroth has now discovered the original version of the Decretum, which has long lain unnoticed among medieval manuscripts, in a version about half as long as the final text. It is also different from the final version in many respects - for example, with regard to the use of of Roman law sources - enabling a reconsideration of the resurgence of law in the twelfth century.

An 'internal' crusade is defined as a holy war authorized by the pope and fought within Christian Europe against those perceived to be foes of Christendom, either to recover property or in defense of the Church or Christians. This study is therefore not concerned with those crusades authorized against Muslim enemies in the East and Spain, nor with crusades authorized against pagans on the borders of Europe. Up to now these crusades have attracted relatively little attention in modern British scholarship. This in spite of their undoubted European-wide significance and an increasing recognition that the period 1198-1245 marks the beginning of a crucial change in papal policy underpinned by canon law. This book discusses the developments through analysis of the extensive source material drawn from unregistered papal letters, placing them firmly in the context of ecclesiastical legislation, canon law, chronicles and other supplementary evidence. It thereby seeks to contribute to our understanding of the complex politics, theology and rhetoric that underlay the papacy's call for crusades within Europe in the first half of the thirteenth century.

A new evaluation of the Editio Romani, the 16th-century edition of the canon law of the Roman Catholic Church, based on manuscript evidence of the committee's daily activities. This edition of the church's law book was the work of the Correctores Romani commission, especially of Miguel Thom�¡s Taxaquet, and was promulgated by Pope Gregory XIII, the former Ugo Buoncompagni, in 1582 and remained in effect until the 20 th century. This study, the first of its kind, reveals the sophisticated scholarly methodology used by these Catholic Humanists and the censorship that led to the loss of some of their greatest insights. Affiliation and research activities: Mary E. Sommar, Ph.D. teaches European History at Millersville University of Pennsylvania. Her research is concentrated on the history of canon law, especially on the work of Gratian of Bologna and the Corpus Iuris Canonici.

Marcia Colish is one of the most influential scholars of the history of medieval and early modern thought, the author of numerous books and scores of articles in the field, as well as a pioneering President of the Medieval Academy of America. This volume honours her accomplishments with papers by her many colleagues, friends, and former students, who are themselves prominent scholars from across a range of disciplines. The chapters are diverse chronologically and topically, yet they are all stimulated by themes that Prof. Colish has explored during her long and distinguished career. They address the richness of European intellectual history between the twelfth and the sixteenth centuries, treating the multiple heritages of philosophy, theology, political theory, historiography, classical reception, and many other subjects to which her scholarship extends. The volume demonstrates the power of ideas in the development of European history generally, revealing that the careful study of the works of the 'mind' does indeed 'matter'.

This is a study of the religious controversy that broke out with Martin Luther, from the vantage of church property. The book shows how acceptance of confiscation was won, and how theological advice was essential to the success of what is sometimes called a crucial if early stage of confessional state-building.

Jewish Conversion from the Sixth Through the Twelfth Century

Conversions between Judaism and Christianity were rare during much of the Middle Ages, yet they were an important facet of relations between Jews and Christians. This dissertation examines the changing dynamics of Jewish conversion from the sixth through the twelfth century. Among the issues under discussion are forcible baptism, religious identity, returning converts and converts' ability to integrate into Christian society, and also analyzes converts' texts. This thesis makes three, related arguments. It postulates that religious identity remained plastic throughout the early Middle Ages, allowing converts to integrate into their new communities, but became more rigid after the late eleventh century. Secondly, it argues that Christian attitudes toward converts, who returned to Judaism grew less tolerant during the twelfth century. Thirdly, it asserts that using coercion to baptize Jews during the tenth and eleventh centuries became more acceptable in the tenth and eleventh centuries. Where possible it also explores converts' experiences of and explanations for conversion in the context of these changes, arguing that there is often a gap between converts' accounts and Christian expectations. The first chapter studies the precedents left from the early Middle Ages by surveying the legislation governing and the early accounts of conversion. The second chapter investigates the plasticity of religious identity in the tenth and eleventh centuries by examining the extant references to converts, while the third chapter deals with the accounts of compulsory baptism from the tenth and eleventh century. The fourth chapter surveys twelfth-century converts, and the expectations of them articulated in Christian conversion stories. The fifth chapter turns to the texts left by three twelfth-century converts and their understandings of conversion. The sixth chapter addresses the question of adolescent conversion, revising the current assumption that most Jewish converts were adolescent males. Finally the seventh chapter examines the changing attitudes toward and treatment of Jewish converts and returning converts in the twelfth century.
