Abstract [en]

The founding of a parish church is one of the most revolutionary changes in the history of the local community. The church was regarded as a meeting place between God and men. The priest came daily before the face of God as a representative of the local Christian community.

The relationship between priest and parishioners could be viewed as a contractual one, where the priest, who carried out acts of daily worship, had his living provided for by the parishioners. His duties were regulated in secular as well as in canon law. The Christian calendar set the rhythm of the yearly cycle.

The article also deals with confession and other aspects of parish life in the Middle Ages.
