A Short History of the Papacy in the Middle Ages

By Walter Ullmann | Go to book overview

Over the course of the years it has frequently been suggested to me that I should write a book of this nature. I need hardly say that it was only after much hesitation that I resolved to undertake the task, for who would not be daunted by the prospect of treating, within a manageable compass, so long a period and especially so central a subject as the medieval papacy? What in the final analysis made me heed the many suggestions was that in one way or another for about a quarter of a century I had been lecturing on this subject; it formed the core of my teaching, has also been part of my own research work for many years and has resulted in publications which are germane to the topic of the book.

Only I know how much this work owes to others; how much stimulated and encouraged I have been by the kindness of colleagues and friends who have supplied me with copies and offprints of their own studies which to my great detriment may easily have escaped my notice; how much, above all, I am indebted to my many pupils, undergraduates and research students, who over the years bore with me in my classes and seminars and supervisions, but whose fresh and wholly unsophisticated manner always provided me with a whole-some stimulus. Here is the place to thank all of them warmly: they may not have been aware of how much I appreciated the points they in youthful enthusiasm put forward. Lastly, as on previous occasions, but this time all the more so, I am deeply grateful to my wife for not only the encouragement and indispensable assistance she has given me, but above all for the selfless forbearance and understanding patience she has shown throughout the period of gestation of this book, composed as it was in times of great stress and tension.

For those readers who would like to pursue certain points further I have appended a few 'Bibliographical Notes': these Notes contain references to primary and secondary source material. They are meant only as very rough guides and are no substitute for a full-scale bibliography.
