Hierbei geht es vor allem um die Absichten und Ziele, die mit den Stiftungen verbunden waren: Welche Deutung und Bedeutung misst ihnen der Liber Pontificalis bei, und wie wurden sie von den Menschen im Fruhmittelalter rezipiert? Den zeitlichen Rahmen bilden die Pontifikate von Gregor III. (731-741) bis Leo III.

Die entscheidenden Phasen und Aspekte dieser wachsenden Unabhangigkeit, die Loslosung von Byzanz, die Etablierung eines Schutzbundnisses mit den Franken, die gewandelte Rolle der romischen Heiligen und die wachsende Bedeutung des Pilgerwesens fur Rom, ausserten sich in neuartigen Bauten und Bildern, in liturgischen und zeremoniellen Innovationen.
