Chapter Summary

Papal support for the Slavonic liturgy is the central theme of the Slavic Cyrillic-Methodian sources. Time was a limiting factor for the effective establishment of a peripheral diocese. This chapter serves to emphasize how competition between Bavaria and Rome could have restricted the possibilities of Roman intervention in Central Europe, delaying and damaging the effective fulfilment of Roman plans. The region's political instability led the popes to experiment with multiple geographical and political combinations, in order to identify the most favorable circumstances for the early stages of the new diocese. The analysis of the issue of Sancta Ecclesia Marabensis has therefore taken into account the characteristics and the purposes of these different types of sources. The sources considered in this book are therefore of great interest because they do not show a linear process culminating in the establishment of a durable ecclesiastical territory.

Keywords: Bavaria; Rome; Sancta Ecclesia Marabensis; Slavic Cyrillic-Methodian sources
