Irregularitats per il·legitimitat i altres causes i l’accés a l’orde clerical. Diòcesi de Barcelona, segle XV

Josep Hernando Delgado


An analysis of the irregularities or canonical impediments to being able to receive the tonsure and the sacred, minor and major, orders, that is to say, to being able to enter the clergy in the 15th century in the diocese of Barcelona: illegitimacy, physical handicaps, not being of canonical age, not being a free man. The bishop could make exceptions in some cases and the Supreme Pontiff in all. The information comes from the Registra Ordinatorum of the Diocesan Achive of Barcelona, one of the most complete historical sources of the 15th century.
