España Pontifica

Papal Letters to Spain 1198–1303

Peter Linehan (+2020) followed his survey of original papal letters in Portugal, Portugalia pontifica 1198-1417 (2013) with the present volume, España Pontifica, that covers papal letters to Spanish recipients from Pope Innocent II (1198-1216) to Pope Boniface VIII (+1303). This volume will provide students of the medieval papacy and the Spanish church with an invaluable research tool to explore the relationship between Rome and Spain during the crucial period of the Spanish Reconquistà after the battles of Navas de Tolosa (1212) to the capture of Seville (1248).

Linehan spent his career cataloguing papal letters from more than sixty Spanish repositories. For the past sixty years the Vatican has also been engaged in publishing surveys of original papal letters preserved from various European archives. However, this volume includes material that has not been included in these surveys.

About the Author

Peter Linehan was professor of history at the University of Cambridge.

Reviews

"España Pontifica is a treasure! Every student of the later medieval papacy and the evolution of diplomatics in the papal chancery in general, but especially with regard to medieval Spanish history, will use this volume."—Uta-Renate Blumenthal, The Catholic University of America
