Chapter Summary

This chapter examines the institutional structure and function of the Castilian Assembly of the Clergy in the early modern period. First, it introduces the major agents in the negotiations. Then it discusses the convocation of the Assembly from the notification of the papal bull to the election of representatives. Next the chapter explores the Assembly?s functions, costs, and purpose. It also addresses the process for the actual collection of the subsidy, including discounts, lawsuits, and other obstacles to collection. By examining the participants and the stages of the Assembly from its convocation to the payment of the contribution by individual dioceses, the chapter finally provides a foundation for comprehending the Assembly and makes the detailed case studies of the negotiations between the Assembly and the crown easier to understand.
