BELDA INIESTA, Javier. The political hierocratism in the first anti-heretical legislation of Pope Innocent III: interdict to Orvieto (1198), Letter to the Bishop of Syracuse (1198) and decretal Vergentis In Senium (1199). Rev. estud. hist.-juríd. [online]. 2020, n.42, pp.235-259. ISSN 0716-5455.

This article aims to show how the transition from Otonian cesaropapism to the bravest application of hierocratic theories of power can be traced by analyzing not only from the perspective of more or less open struggles between the papacy and the Empire, but also from the perspective of the necessary collaboration. In the fight against the heresy, which was jointly opposed by the representatives of the powers that ruled the world. The paradigmatic example is the pontificate of Innocent III, who, in three of his first normative interventions against heresy (the injunction to Orvieto of 1198, the letter to the Bishop of Syracuse of 1198 and the Vergentis in senium of 1199), and with his support for the Religious Orders, demonstrated from the beginning the intention of responding to the secular world and heresy by applying in a concrete way the hyerocratic theory, thus exercising the new conception of power matured by its predecessors.
