Making sense of a palace: The case of cardinals’ livrées in Avignon during the Great Western Schism

Abstract:
In Avignon, the cardinals used their palaces—known as livrées (from the latin libratae, “freed” [houses])—not only for private matters (to eat, sleep, read, and pray), but also for public purposes, as they fulfilled diplomatic and administrative functions for the Church. This paper will address the ways in which performances—banquets, masses, feasts—and the arts—architecture, music, and painting—were key to their inner organization, as well as how they emphasized their owner’s relationship—emulation, rivalry, fealty—with the pope
