The International Congress: “Historiographical Narrative, the Great Schism and the Hundred Years War (1337-1453): Discourse, Religiosity and Reality”, to be held in Lisboa at NOVA School of Social Sciences and Humanities of Universidade Nova de Lisboa, during the 30th-31st May, 2019, is dedicated to the study of medieval chronicles as historical sources, both through analysis of their narrative content and by comparison with data contained in chancellery documentation (royal, ecclesiastical, nobiliary, and municipal) with particular focus on the geopolitical and social relationships in operation between various power groups during the period of the Great Schism and the Hundred Years War (1337-1453). This Congress seeks to highlight the continuous dialogue between, on the one side, historiographical representation, and on the other, the reality as transmitted in official documents produced by the power groups who facilitated or influenced the processes of change or dynastic consolidation in different Peninsular and European kingdoms in the context of the Avignon papacy and the Franco/English war. These power groups may be divided into categories including: clergy, nobility, officialdom, bourgeoisie and people. Elements within these groups had differing objectives, but their methods for attaining them were often common, allowing for the creation of alliances and the formation of heterogeneous blocks.
