Biography/Description

An Anglo-Norman Summa composed during the 1190s, probably not much after Compilatio prima. It served as a source for the Summa ‘Induent sancti’ (Duacensis) and, indirectly, the Summa ‘Prima primi’. The work is also one of the oldest testimonies to the use of Huguccio’s commentary in the northern schools.
