Alcune note sulla Riforma della Chiesa Romana nel pienomedioevo (secoli XI-XII)

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review



The aim of this essay is to offer a historical excursus of both the events and of the most recent international historiographical acquisitions over one of the most important topics of Middle Ages: the so-called “Gregorian Reform”. This concept has been much debated in the last decades by scholars, in order to understand better the multiple implications occurred in Western Europe resulting from the transformation of the Roman Church structure since the eleventh century. The picture emerging from both sources and historical research, however, is very different from the traditional image of Gregory VII and his Reform, revealing, on the contrary, a plural, complex and various context that deeply affected the relations between Rome and the Church in the eleventh and twelfth century.
