Chapter Summary

The purposes of this chapter are: 1) to take stock of recent and older work on how the Schism played out in a variety of venues, and 2) to provide some direction for those about to conduct research into the local experiences of the Schism. To assess the Schisms local impact requires one to draw selectively upon other historians research into the published and archival records of places as distant as Ireland and Cyprus. During the last century, historians have studied experiences of the Schism at a variety of levels, five of which are examined in turn in the chapter: the regional level, the diocesan level, the monastic and mendicant level, the urban level, and the university level. Attention is given in the chapter to especially important discussions of methodology and source material and to published archival guides or source collections.

Keywords: diocesan experiences; Great Western Schism; mendicant experiences; monastic experiences; regional experiences; university experiences; urban experiences
