The documents concerning the feud between the Patriarch of Aquileia and the Counts of Gorizia (1267-1277) are evidence of how written laws show that the ritual forms and gestures of the customary system of conf ict resolution were not only maintained but were regularly inserted into the ritual formulas of written law. Above all they document how the customary system of conf ict resolution, in its ideal image and through rituals, ref ected social values based on the mediation of the community, reciprocity and the propensity to achieve a lasting peace. This is a general structural aspect of conf ict, while the local or particular aspect is shown concretely through the struggle for resources, in the interweaving of single circumstances, where those who succeed in forming the greatest number of loyalties, diff ering and often contrasting alliances, are the ones who prevail. In our case this was clearly better accomplished by the Counts of Gorizia than by the Patriarchs of Aquileia.
