Biography/Description

A fragmentary commentary on C.1 of the Decretum. According to Kuttner, it was influenced by Rufinus and therefore written in the late 1160s. Lenherr has propounded that the summa fragment is remarkable for its originality and has convincingly argued that belongs to the French school of decretists. It cites a decretal by Alexander III to the Archbishop of Rouen in 1170. Lenherr therefore dates it to the 1170s.
