La Pologne dans l'Eglise Medievale, Hardback Book

La Pologne dans l'Eglise Medievale Hardback

Part of the Variorum Collected Studies series


The establishment of Latin Christianity in Poland had a profound impact on its development, and this is the subject of the present volume. The articles range from surveys tracing the main phases of this evolution and the Church's expansion between the 10th and the 16th centuries, to particular studies of parish organisation and the role of the monastic orders - above all the Mendicants, whose importance Professor Kloczowski considers has been much underestimated. In addition, he has also been concerned to relate developments in Poland to those in the neighbouring parts of east-central Europe, in Bohemia, Hungary and, later, in Lithuania, and to trace the ties linking the area with the West, and especially with Italy. La fondation de la chretiente latine en Pologne a eu un impact profond sur son developpement; ceci forme le sujet du present volume. Les articles vont d'evaluations retraAant les principales phases de cette evolution et de l'expansion de l'Eglise entre le 10e et le 16e siecle, A des etudes specifiques sur l'organisation paroissiale et le rA'le des ordres monastiques - surtout les Mendiants, dont l'importance, selon le professeur Kloczowski, a ete beaucoup trop sousestimee. Il s'est aussi attache A etablir les rapports entre les developpements en Pologne et ceux dans les parties avoisinantes de l'Europe de l'Est centrale, en Boheme, en Hongrie et, plus tard, en Lithuanie. Il tente aussi de retracer les liens unissant cette region A l'Ouest et, plus particulierement A l'Italie.
