Biography/Description

Offer a collection of summaries (casus) of those laws to which Bernardus Parmensis refers in his Glossa ordinaria on the Liber Extra. The compiler was probably from Paris, and the original purpose of his work may have been to provide a reference book for the local school of canon law which since the prohibition of Honorius III from 1219 (Super specula) was denied direct involvement in civilian studies. Soon it became a useful tool for canonists all over Europe who could not afford full copies of the legal sources.
