This session is part 3/3 of a strand: Re-Instituting the Institutions: New Perspectives on the Institutions and Officers in Medieval Europe, c. 1100-1500. Administrative and institutional history, as a long-standing field in medieval studies, requires us to return to the material documentation to explore new ideas and perspectives on the institutions. We can only truly understand these institutions by examining the materials they left behind; including the many records they produced. This session will provide a platform for the discussion of issues relating to new perspectives on institutions, and the officers within them, throughout the medieval period. Papers will explore corruption, and entropy within institutions, how the beliefs and actions of officers shaped their institutions, and how institutions operated at various levels crossing all social strata and provinces of medieval Europe.
