'Papal Councils, Papal Records, and the First Crusade: the Council of Benevento in 1113"

The records of papal councils of the late eleventh and the early twelfth centuries survive haphazardly. Yet these assemblies are pivotal for the history of the Church in the High Middle Ages, and Pope Paschal II’s council held at Benevento in February, 1113, offers a compelling example of an important synod whose traces have nearly perished due to vagaries of its documentation. Robert Somerville (Ada Byron Bampton Tremaine Professor of Religion at Columbia University) discusses this matter in his talk for the Center’s History of the Book Lecture series.
