Chapters 4 and 5 discuss the operation of embargo, ca.1270–ca.1520. The contingencies of its implementation as a policy tool notwithstanding, papal embargo upheld unequivocally over time the principles that had shaped it as a moral discourse by the mid-thirteenth century. In turn, its history shows that policies and principles generated by the high medieval church could have a historical trajectory independent of the vicissitudes of the papacy’s own fortunes. Chapter 4: The Multiple Heads of the Infidel clarifies the relationship between papal bulls issued in the period 1289–1308, outlines the scope and the targets of embargo, and exposes the contingences of its implementation. Chapter 4: Maintaining Proper Order and Chapter 4: Shaping Attitudes turn to the effects of embargo within Christian society through a case study of a confrontation between Pope John XXII and Venice, through an examination of the nature, scope, and functioning of papal trade and pilgrimage permits, and of the effects of embargo in the forum of penance.
