« Introduction », dossier Diffusion des normes dans l'Eglise de la fin du Moyen Âge. Les législations ecclésiastiques locales, 1215-1500

Abstract : This opening essay offers an overview of the major conceptual frameworks and historiographical developments in the study of local ecclesiastical legislation during the thirteenth to fifteenth centuries. The close examination of these sources raises the question of the limits of papal centralisation in the wake of the Gregorian reform movement, the persistence of local identities and variations within the broader Church community, and the dynamics of local ecclesiastical power. Yet the difficulties of accessing these sources (which are widely scattered and often still unpublished) has posed hurdles for such research, hindering in particular comparative and large-scale analyses. Two areas of inquiry have been of notable interest to scholars : the impact of model texts (especially during the thirteenth century), and the relationship between this local legislation and the general law of the Church. In both of these areas, much remains to be explored.
