O recrutamento do Cabido da Sé de Lisboa (sécs. XII-XV): Um laboratório para o estudo dos poderes no Portugal medievo

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


The cathedral chapters were assumed throughout the medieval period (and even later) as privileged spaces for the insertion of clergy associated with the various lay and ecclesiastical powers, from the sovereign powers (Papacy, Crown) to the metropolitans and ordinary and even to municipal oligarchies. This intertwining of influences and powers was extremely important in the case of the Lisbon’s cathedral chapter, rooted in the city that became the most important city in the kingdom from the late medieval period. The study of its medieval recruitment, now proposed in a diachronic manner, allows us to glimpse, both in its conjunctural and structural dimension, some of the power relations established within.
