The Papal Monarchy

Colin Morris

Oxford University Press

The episcopal office was revivified by new ideas; greater independence in election gave the bishops more freedom of action as ‘ordinaries’, and (especially in France and England) made it possible for them to act as agents for the reforms decreed by fourth Lateran. These efforts were supported by the diocesan synods and bishops and strengthened by the maintenance of registers and the creation of official principal. Efforts were made to protect the financial position of vicars in parishes. Cathedral canonries were the target of papal provisions.
