PRÁVA A POVINNOSTI UHORSKÝCH BISKUPOV PRI SPRÁVE DIECÉZ V 11. AŽ 14. STOROČÍ Z POHĽADU KÁNONICKÉHO PRÁVA
(The Rights and Duties of Bishops from the Kingdom of Hungary in the Administration of Dioceses in the 11th – 14th Centuries as Related to the Canon Law)
Abstract: Diocesan archbishops and bishops were the most prominent representatives of the medieval Catholic Church in Central Europe. They were responsible for the religious life of their archdiocese or diocese. Only an appointed bishop holds power in pontificalibus, in spiritualibus and in temporalibus. After episcopal ordination, they were authorized to perform sacral acts. The status of bishops, in terms of religious governance and property administration, was derived predominantly from the canon law. Universal canon law collections, conciliar decrees and some elements of secular law determine the fundamental rights and obligations of these prelates. The paper presents the most important of them and supplements them with specific cases from the territory of medieval Kingdom of Hungary.
