PUBLICATION: Antonia Fiori on the "purgatio canonica"
Antonia Fiori, Il giuramento di innocenza nel processo canonico medievale. Storia e disciplina della "purgatio canonica", Frankfurt a.M.: Klostermann (Studien zur europäischen Rechtsgeschichte Band 277), 2013.
The oath of innocence, or purgation, constituted a part of canon law for almost a millennium. It has nevertheless been largely neglected by studies on medieval canonical procedure. This book seeks to
reconstruct the history of the oath of purgation specifically from the perspective of canon law.
