Chapter Summary

Few sources from the late Middle Ages render a better illustration of the web that connected individual destinies and actual incidents of life from all corners of western Christendom with the curial centre of Rome than the recently opened archives of the Apostolic Penitentiary in Rome with its thousands of registered supplications. This chapter provides an introduction to the newly registered Norwegian and Icelandic supplications to the Holy See and will contribute to the interpretation of penitentiary supplications in the light of comparisons to similar texts from other areas. It then focuses on institution of the Papal Penitentiary and will provide some notes on the relations between canonical regulations and local law codes.
