Chapter Summary

This index contains a list of terms relevant to examination of full scope of bishops' activities in southwest France, as they ruled their cathedrals, interacted with lay powers, patronized religious communities, and wrestled with the complex nature of their office. The book Noble Lord, Good Shepherd: Episcopal Power and Piety in Aquitaine, 877-1050 aims not only to investigate the nature of the episcopal office, but to shed light on this understudied period as a whole. The starting point the death of Emperor Charles the Bald in 877, which marked a key moment of change in Aquitaine. The end of the period considered here is the advent of the papal reform movement, which began with the election of Pope Leo IX in 1049, and which would attempt to redefine many aspects of the episcopate.

Keywords: Aquitaine bishops; episcopal power; Good Shepherd; Noble Lord
