Sample text

116 In any case, from the third election of Urban on, the ceremonies followed tradition. While Pierre de Vergne announced the election from a window, the cardinal of Florence, prior of the cardinal-bishops, harangued Prignano with the words “Lord we elected you,” dressed him with the pontifical habit and regalia, and opened the doors of the Vatican for the public’s adoration of the new leader of Christianity. Cardinals asked the usual favors, and on Easter Sunday, 10 April 1378, ceremonies concluded with Prignano’s coronation.

122 He first describes the situation as chaotic: “panic spread everywhere. ”123 However, he later states, “In any case, the cardinals did not seem to have felt overly threatened. ”124 Mollat wants to read threat and danger in the behavior of the crowd but has to minimize the impact of the violence when he surveys the cardinals’ behavior, which was not one of fear. The choice of evidence presented can make the case for or against a threatening level of violence. John Holland Smith, in The Great Schism, unwillingly asserts the conventional character of the few days surrounding the 1378 election when he relies on the evidence provided by the dispatch of the Mantuan envoy Christoforo da Piacenza, dated 9 April 1378.

He does consider the action of the crowd as a menace to the conclave and envisions it as an electoral breach of form. Still, he pauses in his decision to render judgement and questions the cardinals’ silence in the few days that followed the election and coronation of Urban VI. He hesitates between what he considers the obvious misdeeds of the mob and the ambiguous silence of the cardinals who had no reason (fear aside) to keep silent their doubts on the legitimacy and validity of the election.
