The paper analyzes papal utterances, primarily at councils but also in letters, referring too different aspects of the Peace and Truce of God from the time of Pope Leo IX to Pope Innocent II. It seeks to identify papal motives for the appropriation of this originally local institution to further a peaceful Christian ordering of daily life and to include it in the universal papal agenda. Textual comparisons show that utilitas communis was the central concern.
