Die Umgebung Leos IX.: Kurie oder Hof?

Translated title of the contribution: [Autom. eng. transl.] The environment of Leo IX: Curia or court?

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

The composition of Leo IX's curia shows that this pope, traditionally identified as the first reforming pontiff animated by a spirit of independence from the empire, on the contrary sought to universalise the papacy through its imperialisation. In fact, his curia included people from the court of the Emperor Henry III, whose directives Leo IX often appears as a faithful executor.
