De l'église au territoire : les paroisses à Tours (XIe-XIIIe s.)

Abstract : Various stages in the formation of urban parishes in Tours can be established from documentary sources between the 11th and 13th centuries. During that time, burial and baptismal rights were the main bone of contention between ecclesiastical institutions, and parishes were apparently not thought of as territories. The churches were used as gathering points for the faithful, in order to bring together sufficient income for the priest in charge, and the precise demarcation of parochial space occurred only in disputed cases. The connection of these churches within a parish network was not completed before the end of the 13th century. It is only then that the urban parishes in Tours were considered as territories.
