The starting point for the majority of the articles collected here is the study of church councils and their procedures, with a focus on 13th-century France. The author’s concern has been to remedy some of the inadequacies of the existing conciliar corpus and its documentation; one group of studies also describes a number of liturgical manuscripts that contain the ceremonials employed at these councils. Others reflect a broader interest in clerical and legal culture, centering around Dante and his intended readership. Finally, several studies are devoted to particular historiographical questions arising from this work, notably Franco-papal relations, the origins of French clerical taxation, and the conflict between Boniface VIII and Philip the Fair.
