A pieve is a local church with a baptistery that was designated for the minor parishes in central and northern Italy during the Middle Ages. In pre-Carolingian times, the term indicated both the local community of worshippers, along with the district in which it resided, and the religious building in which it gathered. The pievi were legal entities and were characterized by the permanent presence of ecclesiastics with a pastoral role and encompassed a huge territory with many secondary churches or chapels.
