To introduce the issues raised by the history of the church in the later middle ages and to provide a broad survey of religious and ecclesiastical activity and its social and political impact in Western Europe between the Fourth and Fifth Lateran Councils. The structure is intended to provide for the analysis of themes within a chronological framework.
