Chapter Summary

This index presents a list of terms and concepts that occur in this book titled A Contrite Heart. Under religious influence, Carolingian law became oriented in part around the welfare of the accused, who not only gained rights of individual protection during prosecution but whose punition was conceived as therapeutic. The therapeutic conception of justice applied to the larger polity as well, for, again, under religious influence, collective redemption, or at least protection against dangers to collective spiritual welfare, entered the rationales for legal intervention.

Keywords: Carolingian law; religious influence; spiritual welfare
