Abstract

Haec sancta and the continuity of judicial process at the Council of Constance: A comparison of the Jean Petit tyrannicide case and the dispute for the master-generalship of the Crociferi at Bologna MARTIN JOHN CABLE / LuCCA Few events can match John XXIII's flight from the council of Constance in 1415 for its ability to bring abstract political ideas to dramatically to life.

In more abstract terms, that choice as to whether to stay or to go meant deciding whether it was ultimately to the Pope or to the Council that delegates felt that they owed their loyalty. And to reflect on that meant considering whether supreme authority in the Church fundamentally resided with the Pope or with a
