Abstract

This session focuses on the building, negotiations and uses of diverse forms of canon law in different institutional, cultural, and historical contexts. The aim is to analyse the relationship between different instances of authority and power in both the Byzantine and the Medieval World. Following a chronological order, the first paper analyses the institutional identity of the Papacy during the Lateran Council of 649, the second paper studies the canonical questions of Byzantine bishops in the 12th century, and the third paper examines marriage dispensations in the diocese of Quattrocento Florence from a socio-legal perspective.
