Abstract

The session will discuss both secular and ecclesiastical mechanism in the mutual relation on the European scale. First, ‘human resources’ of late medieval Hungarian diplomacy in the Jagiellonian period shall present prosopographically to determine global parterns and local specialities. It will also consider evolving ideas of the autonomy of the throne of the Holy Roman Emperor, approaches to the Church, and the interplay between imperial prince-electors. Finally, these question shall be contrasted to the situation at the East of Europe from an ecclesiastical point of view, portrating relations between the Patriarchate of Constantinople and the Churches of the Balkans.
