Abstract

This chapter explains how the curia changed over the period 1492 to 1692, paying particular attention to shifts in its structures, procedures, and personnel. The medieval curia, through which popes had provided a limited range of arbitrational and spiritual services to the faithful across Christendom, gradually evolved into a more complex and multivalent organism, which fulfilled different roles simultaneously. On the one hand, the early modern curia housed standing committees called Congregazioni (Congregations) that directed Tridentine Catholicism, including its programs of spiritual renewal and extra- European evangelization; on the other, it served as the basis for the temporal governance of the Papal States. This unusual duality of purpose and the tensions it engendered were important drivers of the curia’s history in the 16th and 17th centuries. By extension they also had a significant impact on the papacy’s wider history and on the history of the city and citizens of Rome itself.
