A Sacred City

Consecrating Churches and Reforming Society in Eleventh-Century Italy

Louis I Hamilton

In the Latin West the eleventh century was a time of rapid social change, political expansion and violent conflict between secular and religious powers over the control of sacred space, epitomized by the so-called Investiture Conflict. By analysing the consecrations of churches and attempts to direct the large crowds which such occasions attracted, Hamilton identifies the significance of religious rites as metaphor for reform, and highlights the complex relationship between the political, social and religious in Italian cities.
