Chapter Summary

The patriarchate of Aquileia occupies one of the most important places in the medieval history of the Slovene territory. This chapter addresses the complex nature and extensiveness of the field implied by the syntagma "The Aquileian patriarchate and Slovene history". One of these themes is the margravial authority the patriarchs of Aquileia exercised in Carniola in the High Middle Ages. The March of Carniola was formed when the Magyar incursions ended and the peaceful period following the Battle of Augsburg in 955 enabled new development, reflected in new forms of organisation. Although the Church of Aquileia was given possession of Istria and Carniola with unlimited power of disposal, it soon lost both counties. The counts of Andechs probably gained the position of deputies in Carniola around the mid 12th century. The Church of Aquileia never formally renounced its authority in Carniola.

Keywords: Battle of Augsburg; counts of Andechs; Istria; March of Carniola; margravial authority; medieval Slovene history; patriarchate of Aquileia
