1170s

 

Alternative Names

 

Biography/Description

A Summa on pars prima of the Decretum, which was composed by a French master of the Arts during the 1170s. It contains references suggesting that the author taught at Cologne for some time. He also wrote Notule super libello de signficationibus uerborum, which, however, have not yet been found. The Summa probably never covered more than D.1–101 of Gratian’s work. The Mainz and Vatican MSS include only D.1–10 of Antiquitate et tempore and, for the rest of pars prima, preserve an adaptation of Rufinus’ Summa and Antiquitate et tempore, the so-called Pseudo-Rufinus.
