OFFER DESCRIPTION

The council that opened in Pavia on 23 April 1423 and continued in Siena until February 1424 is generally underestimated, despite the fact that it was the link between Constance and Basel. The research grant will be awarded to a scholar who will undertake systematic archival work to recover unpublished material: any "diaries" of the Council and any useful data for the prosopography of the participants, with particular attention to the material aspects of the "event" (financing, logistics, public rites and manifestations). The researcher will also carry out specific research on the significance of the Council in Visconti politics, on the contribution of theologians and jurists of the Studium Pavese regarding the ecclesiological issues on the agenda, and on the rituals that involved the city and its citizens.
