Chapter 1

Pope Urban II's Council of Piacenza

Robert Somerville

  • Completes the picture of what can be known about the papal synods of one of the most influential Roman pontiffs of the Middle Ages
  • Includes English translations for most Latin passages, including for the conciliar canons
  • Provides a commentary for the canons, decree by decree, in clear, not excessively technical, language
  • Uses several dozen medieval manuscripts so offers a deeper and more informed basis for the edition of the canons than any existing text
