Chapter Summary

On Monday, 23 June 1326, five galleys sailed up the Arno River from the Mediterranean Sea and put in at the harbor of Pisa. Orsini was anxious to start planning his campaign against Castruccio but discovered, to his considerable irritation, that his partner, Duke Charles of Calabria, was absent from the city. Orsini’s constitutions sought to restore the old balance between secular and ecclesiastical institutions. The general emphasis on diocesan authority over disobedient clergy removed clerical cases from municipal fora and restored them to ecclesiastical tribunals, and De testamentis returned to episcopal oversight a matter more recently reserved to communal jurisdiction.
