Judging the Bishops. Defining powers in the post-Tridentine church

Elena Bonora


The trial of a bishop for heresy against the backdrop of the reorganisation of powers in the Church in the second half of the sixteenth century. Caught between the affirmation of the inquisitorial ideology and the reinforcement of Rome's centralism, a generation of bishops faced a changing world.
