Description
Summary:none 1 no This thesis concerns the relationships between the Holy See, the Kingdom of Norway and the church province of Nidaros, which included the five Norwegian dioceses (Nidaros, Oslo, Bergen, Stavanger and Hamar) and those of Iceland, Greenland, Faroe, Orkneys, Hebrides and the isle of Man. The documents has been selected according to a chronological criterion, within a time range which spans from the 11th to the 13th century. In particular the first and the second chapters deal with the outset and the development of the Church in the North and especially in Norway, from the missionary phase to the foundation of the archbishopric of Nidaros and the subsequent conflict with the kings for the bishops' elections. The third chapters explores further aspects of the religious life and the ecclesiastical organization of the kingdom: the introduction of tithes, the crusade movement and the arrival of the Mendicant orders. The fourth chapter, which deals with the transformation of royal power after che christianization, analyzes the coronations of the Norwegian kings in order to reconstruct a ordo coronationis for Norway, while the fifth chapter examines how the canonical laws - Decretum Gratiani, decretals and conciliar decrees - was incorporated in the Norwegian provincial laws in the 12th and 13th century. Finally, the appendix colletcs the most significant documents along with texts from the Saga of king Sverre.
