Chapter Summary

This chapter examines the issues and conflicts surrounding the verification of the veros valores and the redistribution of the church subsidy in Castile between 1540 and 1542. It begins with a review of the agreement of 1540 on verifying the veros valores and the reasons for its failure. It then focuses on the subsequent Castilian Assembly of the Clergy of 1541 and details the torturous negotiations on the proper procedures of verification and a more equitable apportioning of the subsidy. These contentious negotiations over verification procedures reveal significant divisions within the Assembly and illuminate the complex interactions and power relations between church and state in a critical area of royal finance. Finally, the negotiations between 1540 and 1542 provide insight into the workings of the Assembly of the Clergy and the dynamics of the exchange between church and state.

Keywords: Castilian Assembly; church subsidy; clergy; torturous negotiations; verification procedures; veros valores
