The 1272 mission to Constantinople of Jerome d’Ascoli, Minister General of the Friars Minor and future pope Nicholas IV , represents an interesting observation point to investigate the relationship between papal diplomacy and the negotium crucis at the end of the so-called ‘classic’ period of the medieval crusades. It allows to understand not only the Gregory X’s international politics, at the threshold of the Second Council of Lyons, aiming at building a Mediterranean Pax, but also its connection with the problem of the unio between the Eastern and Western Churches. In this historical context, in fact, a political and ecclesial Pax constituted the necessary condition for resuming the suspended project of the passagium Terrae Sanctae which is, in turn, the most pressing concern of the Gregorian papacy.

Abstract

The 1272 mission to Constantinople of Jerome d’Ascoli, Minister General of the Friars Minor and future pope Nicholas IV , represents an interesting observation point to investigate the relationship between papal diplomacy and the negotium crucis at the end of the so-called ‘classic’ period of the medieval crusades. It allows to understand not only the Gregory X’s international politics, at the threshold of the Second Council of Lyons, aiming at building a Mediterranean Pax, but also its connection with the problem of the unio between the Eastern and Western Churches. In this historical context, in fact, a political and ecclesial Pax constituted the necessary condition for resuming the suspended project of the passagium Terrae Sanctae which is, in turn, the most pressing concern of the Gregorian papacy.
