The Apostolic See and the World. Challenges and risks facing global history. Invitation to debate
With the notable exception of the history of missions, it seems that studies on the Papacy and the Holy See have not been, so far, much affected by the suggestive historiographical trends represented by world and global history. Yet, the actual presence of Christian denominations in all continents, the development of own legal rules –canon law, moral theology, liturgy– and their global dissemination, as well as the formation of a complex hierarchical and institutional system active on a global scale make the figure of the Roman Pontiff and the Apostolic See a very interesting subject of study in a global perspective.
The Max-Planck Institute for European Legal History invites scholars to participate in the debate concerning "The Apostolic See and the World. Challenges and risks facing global history". The debate will be published in the next issue of the Institute’s journal -Rechtsgeschichte-, set for release at the end of this year.
