OFFER DESCRIPTION

Compared to the interest received by bishops and dioceses of the Regnum Italiae in the Dark Ages and the early Middle Ages, the vicissitudes, especially patrimonial ones, of the bishoprics of the Italian peninsula in the following centuries have been much less investigated. The episcopate of Pavia in particular is very little known, despite the existence of a rich material, still largely unpublished.
The research has as its object the bishop's assets in the communal age (late twelfth to mid-fourteenth century). Its objective will be to record lands and jurisdictional rights pertaining to the episcopal mensa, in order to outline the dynamics of possession – dispersions, recoveries, restructuring, administrative techniques – in relation to the competing economic and political powers (the Commune, rural communities, eminent families): a case study that, through comparison, can serve as a reference point for studies on the ecclesiastical lordship of the late Middle Ages.
