A Dialogue Between Emerging Realities: the New Kingdoms and the Apostolic see in the Twelfth Century

A dialogue between emerging realities : the New Kingdoms and the Apostolic See in the twelfth century

26-27 September 2024 , Faculdade de Letras , Universidade do Porto (Porto)


The aim of this conference is to analyse the relations between the Apostolic See and the new political realities emerging in Europe in the first half of the twelfth century. The idea is to tackle
the so called “peripheries” through the often overlooked point of view of Rome and to consider both the centre (the Apostolic See) and these kingdoms as “work s in progress”, always looking for
opportunities to be acknowledged. This approach will also help in highlighting how external institutions contributed to the elaboration of the Roman primacy.

This conference will be part of the project The Pope’s men. Papal legates, judges delegate, and representatives in the Iberian Peninsula (XI XIII centuries) centuries), FCT 2022.00422.CEECIND
