  • Title: Si et in quantum: The Role of Papal Dispensations in Matrimonial Contracts of Fifteenth Century Ragusa [The author has found five instances in which dispensations figured in the marriage contracts of elite families in fifteenth century Ragusa. Any dispensation was supposed to predate transfer of the bride to the groom's home. Couples who did not wait for a dispensation had to seek absolution and legitimization of offspring. Title note supplied by Feminae.]
