Abstract

The first paper concentrates on the different design-traditions of Henry’s and Constance’s charters and its purpose with regard to politically influential groups. The second paper focuses on Frederick’s return to South Italy and his immediate measures to reorganise and restructure his kingdom. The third paper discusses the ideas on imperial documents the law students learned in Bologna and Naples in the time of Frederick II.
