Chapter Summary

This chapter considers two aspects of transformation process: (i) the organisation of offices into sectors in the late Medieval period; (ii) the clarification of privileges and prerogatives in the course of the Modern era. Its intent is to draw a - necessarily schematic - picture of the household of the pope that shows the many features that this segment of the pontifical court shared with the palace offices of other European sovereigns' courts. The chapter also shows how the specific features became clear and then rigid until the papal court acquired its own distinctive configuration in the course of the Modern age.
