AbstractIn the second session, we will be focussing on the jurisdiction of urban minority groups. We aim to investigate the jurisdictions between secular law - primarily urban - and canon law within the medieval town, as well as how juridical boundaries would define urban religious and social groups. The speakers approach the regulation of urban marginal groups with examples from different European regions. Rodrigo García-Velasco will speak about the Muslims of Tortosa, in Catalonia using one ecclesiastical and one royal judicial record that entangled this community in some tricky questions of local jurisdiction. Arnaud Fossier's paper discuss aspects of the urban society of Pistoia, Tuscany, through criminal, matrimonial or usury cases, in context of the bishop's jurisdiction in the town and its surroundings. Miriam Jensen Tveit and Helle Vogt will look at the regulation of persons not belonging to a household in the Norwegian and Danish towns.
