Ecclesia Disputans: Religion and Politics in the Conflict Resolution Practices of Pre-Modern Synods

Die Konfliktpraxis vormoderner Synoden zwischen Religion und Politik

Edited by: Christoph Dartmann, Andreas Nikolaus Pietsch and Sita Steckel
In the Latin Church, synods were places to seek religious truth but also political events with their own rules for conflict resolution. This volume discusses the dynamics of religion and politics in synods from late antiquity, the Middle Ages, and the early modern era, combining research on the history of ecclesiastical councils, conflict management and legal and political decision-making in the premodern era.
