Chapter Summary

This section presents a list of terms and concepts and drawings relevant to analysis of idea of sanctity and its many medieval manifestations across time (fifth through fifteenth centuries) and in different geographical locations (England, Scotland, France, the Low Countries). For a long time, the religious history of medieval Christendom was identified with that of church institutions: the papacy, councils, episcopate, monastic and religious orders, parish authorities, pastoral visits, synod statutes, and still others. Such an approach, bearing the mark of legal historians, brought into being works strong on synthesis, some of which have retained their usefulness to this day. Gary Dickson's work permits a better interpretation and comprehension of a key aspect of this momentous period of history.

Keywords: church; medieval christendom; sanctity
