Example text

Bishop Peter in fact laid claim to forty solidi still deposited at Saint Hermes, from which Saint-Maxim-and-Saint-Agatha had recently been detached. Peter also transferred certain monks elsewhere (Registrum, IX, 21). 102 Italia Pontificia X, pp. 241–242. We can in no way be certain that the monastery built in 1347 is to be identified as the direct successor of the foundation mentioned by Gregory the Great. 103 Registrum, II, 50. 104 Registrum, IX, 35. 106 The bishopric itself had at its disposal at least one xenon, of sufficient importance that the deacon who assumed responsibility for it could subsequently have had his eye on the episcopate.

Once again, the pontiff thought to settle the question apud electos iudices. This has been viewed as proof of the control exercised by the military authorities over the collection of taxes intended to maintain the garrisons on the island,76 but this interpretation seems untenable. 71 Registrum, III, 49. , Storia della Sicilia, III, (Naples, 1980), p. 24. 72 Cezary Kunderewicz, “Les topotèrètes dans les Novelles de Justinien et dans l’Égypte byzantine,” Journal of Juristic Papyrology 14 (1962), 33–50.

13 The surrender was negotiated by an individual whom Ibn al-Athīr identifies as the “lord” (ṣāḥib) of the city, rather than using the more usual “patrikios,” as this same author does to refer to the majority of Byzantine officers in his chronicle. The Gesta episcoporum Neapolitanorum gives us good grounds for identifying him with a certain Simeon, who bore the title of spatharios,14 a term which at this date no longer refers to any function but simply to an aulic honour. It was therefore probably a notable who negotiated, in concert with bishop Luke, also mentioned in the Neapolitan chronicle, the surrender of the city.
