Chapter Summary

This chapter concerns the way in which the ninth-century Lateran scrinium reworked and actualized the legacy of the past by re-reading the story of Methodius and the establishment of the new ecclesiastical province in the light of precedents: the Apostolic See had previously intervened in missionary processes, claiming a leading role in the creation of new ecclesiastical provinces. It talks about an encoded modus operandi, which could further help to reconstruct the different phases of papal policy in the case of the Methodian archdiocese. The chapter begins with a broad contextualization of the policy of John VIII. Finally, it focuses on the rhetorical strategies developed by the papal scrinium to communicate with the barbarians in the last three decades of the ninth century.

Keywords: languages; Pannonian-Moravian Diocese; Papal strategies; Pope John VIII
