(p.110) VII The Merovingians and the Papacy
The Frankish Church

J. M. Wallace‐Hadrill

Oxford University Press

The relationship between the Merovingian Frankish Church and the papacy is examined from the time of the first Frankish settlers. It is found to have carried on in a similar manner to that between the Gallo–Roman Church and the papacy — spasmodic contact, although there was communion, affection, mutual respect and recognition of papal authority. Aspects discussed include patrimony (as exemplified by the Provençal patrimony) and the liturgical usages of northern Gaul (including the sacramentary, and the practical guides to liturgical performance — the Ordines Romani).

Keywords:   Frankish Church, Gaul, history, liturgical performance, liturgy, Merovingian period, Ordines Romani, papacy, papal authority, patrimony, religious history, sacramentary
