Chapter Summary

By far the largest and simultaneously central part of present-day Slovenia between the Drava, Sotla, and Kolpa rivers belonged to the bischopric of Aquileia. This chapter briefly discusses the origin and the beginnings of episcopal property in the territory of present-day Slovenia. The properties the bishoprics had in Slovene territory create a picture that is quite different from that of the ecclesiastical administrative division. Of the bishoprics, only Aquileia and Salzburg were large landowners in the High Middle Ages, while the properties of the two coastal bishoprics were small and largely limited to the territories of the cities of Trieste and Koper. The chapter concludes by noting that the foundations of episcopal property in Slovene territory were largely laid in the century between 970 and 1070, which is also the period in which the basic network of seigneuries was established and intensive feudalization took place in what is now Slovenia.
