The Proprietary Church in the Medieval West

The Proprietary Church in the Medieval West

Susan Wood


This publication examines in what methods and the way a long way medieval church buildings have been handled as goods of estate. It levels over such a lot of Western Europe, from beginnings within the past due Roman Empire and post-Roman kingdoms, into the Carolingian empire and its neighbours and successor states; and during the Gregorian reform, as much as the past due 12th century whilst estate in church buildings was once patchily outmoded through the canon-law correct of patronage. The technique is as a lot social and non secular as felony and administrative, and explores rules and assumptions in addition to functional exploitation and estate dealings.
