Chapter Summary

Some time toward the end of 1329 or the beginning of 1330, Orsini moved his headquarters from Montefiascone to Rome. There is no doubt that John XXII meant for Orsini to address some or even all of the many problems which remained in the city in the aftermath of the emperor’s expulsion, but Rome itself was not among the territories placed under the legate’s jurisdiction. John XXII was an expert canonist; he was fully aware that Giovanni Orsini could not exercise legatine authority in a city that had not been committed to his jurisdiction. The installation of the two Orsini vicars coincides with a rapid transfer of power in Rome and the Patrimony from the Angevins to the Orsini.
