AbstractHow did Rome and its political and ecclesiastical institutions see 'Others' during the 11th/12th century? And how was Rome seen by 'Others'? The aim of this session is to analyse crucial moments when Rome and its institutions (particularly, but not exclusively, the papacy) had to deal with 'others', and to explore their attitudes towards each other. This two-way process of continued conflict and encounter shaped both Rome and 'Others'. Each became more aware of their own identities and created instruments and claims to assert their unique peculiarities (and sometimes to impose them).
