This study describes power and politics in Rome and the role of the papacy in European politics during the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. It attempts to overcome the traditional historiographical approach to the role of the papacy during this period by focusing on the actual mechanisms of power in the papal court--political, personal, spiritual, and ceremonial. Based on new research in Italian and other European archives, it charts the transition from a political to a primarily spiritual power between the Renaissance and the Peace of Westphalia.

Review:

"Court and Politics in Papal Rome, 1492-1700 is an innovative book, showing the exciting directions in which Roman scholarship is moving, as well as the richness and relevancy of such scholarship for the history of early modern Europe as a whole. One can only hope that the display of such vast archival riches and such thoughtful and exacting scholarship will inspire others to enter the field." Renaissance Quarterly

"Scholarly and...useful." Catholic Library World

"This strong collection comprises ten original essays that elucidate how power was exercised and represented in the early modern papal court. Attention to institutional structures is complemented by sensitivity to how individuals negotiated paths through those structures to exert power and influence." Choice

"Ten sharply focused essays offer insights into the development of policies and practices of the papal court in the early modern period, addressing the latest historiographical discussions...This spectrum of helpful analyses will expand the understanding of students of the papacy and early modern methods and mechanics of government." Religious Studies Review

"These ten essays... richly advance our knowledge of the complex institution of the papacy, 'sovereigns without dynasty', from Alexander VI to Innocent XI." Sixteenth Century Journal

"An impressive collection of essays." H-Catholic

"This collection of essays seem to respond very well to the intents of the editors." Seventeenth_Century News

Book Description CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY PRESS, United Kingdom, 2008. Hardback. Condition: New. New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. This 2002 book attempts to overcome the traditional historiographical approach to the role of the early modern papacy by focusing on the actual mechanisms of power in the papal court. The period covered extends from the Renaissance to the aftermath of the peace of Westphalia in 1648 - after which the papacy was reduced to a mainly spiritual role. Based on research in Italian and other European archives, the book concentrates on the factions at the Roman court and in the college of cardinals. The sacred college came under great international pressure during the election of a new pope, and consequently such figures as foreign ambassadors and foreign cardinals are examined, as well as political liaisons and social contacts at court. Finally, the book includes an analysis of the ambiguous nature of Roman ceremonial, which was both religious and secular: a reflection of the power struggle both in Rome and in Europe.
