Example text

Furthermore, what is the meaning of ‘binding and loosing’? The phrase could have a purely spiritual sense relating to sin. Yet the papacy interpreted it in a jurisdictional manner, and in so doing reflected rabbinic practice which used the terms in connection with decisions in regard to the law, although the main influence would have been the Roman law employment of ‘to bind’ (ligare) and ‘to loose’ (solvere). Christ, in short, was understood in this passage to have instituted a church and to have imparted jurisdiction to Peter within it as a response to the latter’s recognition of his master’s divinity.

The fundamental duty of the Christian ruler to care for his subjects’ well-being was also understood in terms of his role as their protector or preserver. The Roman source for this idea can be found in the model of a tutor who must act in the interests of the minor committed to his guardianship. 68 The king’s tutorial role is a large theme which runs throughout medieval political thought. The seeds of it are to be found in this early period, although its main development appears to be from the Carolingian period onwards.

35 The moral and doctrinal well-being of the clergy is essential for the health of the Christian empire, and thus demands imperial supervision. This imperial role was expressed in permanent form by the legislation of Justinian and his predecessors. The first thirteen titles of the Code were concerned with the clergy and religious questions, as were many of the Novels. 36 Although Justinian preserved the crucial distinction between the imperium and the sacerdotium, he also maintained that there was not much difference between them.
