This chapter examines the emergence of the so-called pontifical diplomacy in the context of the Anglo-French conflict in the 14th century. During this period, making peace in the midst of the omnipresent wars of western Christendom was the task of the Popes. They were the ones who negotiated truces, offered arbitration, and organized meetings between belligerent parties. One of their principal undertakings, and one in which they failed to make peace, was the Anglo-French War.

Keywords:   pontifical diplomacy, Anglo-French war, popes, truces, arbitration
