Chapter Summary

The present paper aims to show by interpreting some important narrative sources such as the St Stephen’s legends (Legenda maior, Legenda ab Hartuico conscripta) and the Chronici Hungarici compositio saeculi XIV how useful they were for jurisdictional interpretation. The latter was created mainly during the first phase of the quarrel of investiture (last quarter of the eleventh century) and emphasized the king’s rights in ecclesiastical affairs. He was considered both a layman (rex) and a churchman (sacerdos), and he was authorised to act in ecclesiastical affairs by ‘two rights’ (utroque iure). Similarly some narrative sources contain jurisdictional references, i. e. privileges of exemption, based on a generally known thesis of the so-called ‘St Stephen’s traditition’. The jurisdictional base which assured the special rights was created by using the first king of Hungary as common element, and that stratagem was also used reversely: special rights conceded by pope Clement III were forged into the third version of St Stephen’s Legend (Legenda ab Hartuico conscripta) as a privilege given by the first king of Hungary.
