DISSERTATION

 

“I procedimenti romani post-tridentini di nomina episcopale: I vescovi toscani e veneti di Urbano

VIII” [The Post-Tridentine Appointment of Bishops: The Tuscan and Venetian Bishops of Urban

VIII].

 

The dissertation provides a survey of the development of the procedures for appointing bishops in seventeenth-century Italy, showing that the canons of Trent could only marginally influence the politically-controlled process of choosing the bishops for the Tridentine Catholic Church. A preliminary overview of the procedure is followed by a close analysis of the cases of Tuscany and Venice during the key-period of of Urban VIII’s pontificate (1623-1644).

 

Advisors: Prof. Giuseppe Alberigo (University of Bologna) and Prof. Peter Hünermann (Eberhard-Karls-

Universität Tübingen).
