Chapter Summary

This index presents a list of ancient sources that occur in this book titled A Contrite Heart. These sources includes biblical figures, events, or traditions. Carolingianists and scholars in legal studies alike continue to explore the potential for anthropological and sociological methods to clarify the relationships between textual artifacts and social contexts. The book argues that the expansion of ecclesiastical and imperial power entailed a significant educational program in new ways of thinking about sin and salvation that had political as well as religious implications. It considers how, once educated in what this book calls the ?penitentialism? of the Carolingian Empire, denizens of the empire viewed the power exercised over them as confessants, and it probes their means of constructing a viable resistance to the weight of institutional power over their souls.

Keywords: Carolingian empire; institutional power
