The Ordo processus Narbonensis: the Earliest Inquisitor’s Handbook, Lost and Refound
Ebook in formato Pdf leggibile su questi device:
Handbooks were fundamental to the development of medieval inquisition procedure from the mid-thirteenth century on. The earliest of these handbooks to survive, the 1244 Ordo processus Narbonensis, speaks to this early stage of development, but until now it has only been known in a nineteenth-century transcription. This article presents the rediscovered manuscript, which also contains a more substantial and hitherto unknown Lombard inquisitorial collection. The presence of the Ordo in this larger collection is evidence of an inquisitorial culture shared across regional and institutional boundaries. An edition of the Ordo, and of several otherwise unknown items, are included in appendix.
