Title : Simone ha aderito alla fede di Maometto: La 'fornicazione spirituale'come causa di separazione (Lucca 1424)" [The ecclesiastical courts of Lucca largely dealt with the bond of marriage, leaving the property issues of a dissolution to the lay courts. In her petition for a divorce from Simone di Iacopo, Bartolomea di Matteo argued that her husband had gone over to Islam and had taken a Muslim wife. The ecclesiastical tribunal made careful inquiries and concluded that this was true. Bartolomea was granted a separation from Simone, but the marriage was not annulled.
