(p.19) 2 Marriage and the Church's Marriage-Texts
The Measure of Multitude

Peter Biller

Oxford University Press

This chapter reviews the Church's theological and canon-legal texts concerning marriage and population. It focuses on a cross-section of a system: the Church covering and trying to control most aspects of marriage in Latin Christendom. This system had a long history, in which the main theme is the Church's progression from a smaller and less public role to a more dominant one in the 13th century.

Keywords:   Church, marriage, theological texts, population, Latin Christendom
