Abstract

During the First World War, the parliaments of the states involved in the conflict were, in most cases, forced to drastically limit their activity and were often precluded the possibility of fully exercising their prerogatives. More generally the spaces of freedom granted to the citizens, of which the parliamentary institution was the brightest symbol, shrank dramatically. At the same time, the power of military commands expanded, not only in trenches and on battlefields, but also in many areas of civilian life. However, in the final years of the war, the Parliaments succeeded not only in gradually regaining control, but also in pushing for an extension of their functions, initiating a process that in many states coincided with the transition from a liberal order to a full democratic order. The years of the "long" postwar period were however dense with contradictions. Legislative and executive law often grew together, while in some cases the imperative logic imposed for a long time in wartime re-emerged and consolidated. This volume, which examines several national cases, illustrates some of the ambivalent features of this dramatic phase of European history.

Abstract

The volume edits all sources relating the Neapolitan parliaments during the Aragonese era. Reintroducted in Southern Italy by Alfonso the Magnanimous, parliaments were an important institution for the relations between the Crown, the barons ad the desmenial towns, although it was not the only occasion of negotiating. The analysis of seventeen parliaments and other similar assemblies (regional parliaments, afforced Royal Councils) allow us to study the entire history of the Kingdom from 1441 to 1500. In this context the authors examine the parliaments’ proceedings, records, motivations and conclusions. The Neapolitan parliaments were not regular but had important different functions, according to the historical context and the different positions of the Kings, on one side, and of summoned members, on the other side. Taxation and justice were the main issues of the political and symbolic confrontation between the sovereign and the subjects.
