Pope Benedict XII (1334-1342)
Full Product Description
Thus, while individual studies have touched upon specific aspects of Benedicta (TM)s career, a complete fulla Elength overview of the life and work of this pope has yet to emerge. The present volume not only fulfils this essential purpose but also offers a fresh perspective on several aspects of the career and pontificate of Benedict XII. Ten experts in different fields of research reconsider Fourniera (TM)s inquisitorial involvement, analyse his theological contribution, and examine the major political, religious, administrative, and artistic contributions of his pontificate. They focus on different geographic contexts, ranging from the Avignon region and Western Europe, to the Eastern Mediterranean and the Mongol Khanates. Far from focusing solely on a "the mana (TM), the volume seeks to appreciate the complexity of relations that existed between the Holy See and its principal interlocutors, and to reconstruct the wider religious, cultural, and political context of Benedicta (TM)s time.
In so doing, the book will shed light on the peculiarities of the papacy at Avignon and will address questions related to what it meant to defend and expand Roman orthodoxy in the first half of the fourteenth century. Certainly, by means of complete and updated bibliographies, the book aims to provide essential points of reference for future research on the Avignon papacy and, more generally, on the religious, cultural, and political history of the Late Middle Ages.
