Abstract

‘The way to a man’s heart is through his stomach’, a proverb says, but as is known sharing a meal is also a way of cementing emotional bonds and alliances and a master key to reconciling differences and to resolving conflicts. It is therefore quite interesting to consider the shared meal and the table in general as an instrument of diplomacy. In a series of lectures the role of feasts and food at the Papal Court in the Late Middle Ages will be explored.
