My research investigates collaboration and cohesion between religious and secular elites in later medieval Europe, with especial regard to Italy, c.1215-c.1450. I seek to expose the social and legal norms underlying an apparently simple phenomenon: the paid employment of monks, penitents and other regular religious in numerous government offices. The aim is to produce a spatial and chronological 'map' of the stipendiary employment of such religious in the Italian city-states, and an in-depth comparative analysis, integrated with evidence drawn from across Europe. I envisage the result as a contribution to debates about (amongst other questions) trust, identity, and reputation, while also modifying conventional narratives of secularisation.
