Biography/Description

Primitive collection with 193 items. Substantive rubrics were included at the time of compilation, but decretals were not divided into separate titles. Manuscript has marginal glosses, mostly cross-references to other decretals. This collection is closely related to the Claudiana; both stem from an archetype from Canterbury from c.1181. It dates from c.1182 and comes from Northern England, perhaps Bridlington Priory.
