Publisher Comments:

This classic text outlines the development of the papacy as an institution in the Middle Ages. With profound knowledge and insight, Ullmann traces the course of papal history from the late Roman Empire to its eventual decline in the Renaissance.

Book News Annotation:

A previous edition is cited in Books for College Libraries, 3d ed.. Ullmann (1910-83) was a Medieval historian at Cambridge, and his highly-regarded account of Papacy from the late Roman Empire through the schism was published by Methuen and reprinted three times over the next decades. This edition was published in 2003 with the new introduction by George Garnett (Oxford U.)

Synopsis:

This classic text outlines the development of the Papacy as an institution in the Middle Ages. With profound knowledge, insight and sophistication, Walter Ullmann traces the course of papal history from the late Roman Empire to its eventual decline in the Renaissance.

The focus of this survey is on the institution and the idea of papacy rather than individual figures, recognizing the shaping power of the popes' roles that made them outstanding personalities. The transpersonal idea, Ullmann argues, sprang from Christianity itself and led to the Papacy as an institution sui generis.

Synopsis:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 337-371) and index.
