Description

This text combines the theory of 13th- and 14th-century pastoral legislation and pastoral manuals from Barcelona with the realities found in documents from the Barcelona bishops' courts between 1335-1363, the years surrounding the Black Death. Not surprisingly, the two differ vastly, and matters which occupied canonists and theologians often received no official attention in court records. This book develops a picture of diocesan life in Barcelona based on the structures imposed by its legislation, but it also explores the social history of a diocese and its parishes in the period before, during and after the Black Death.
