Biography/Description

Glosses on Gratian’s Decretum that have been compiled and edited by Weigand. Weigand believed the author to have worked in Bologna; Gouron has argued that the W. is a Magister Walter (Walterus or Gualterus) of English origin working in Paris. Landau had identified him as Walter de Coutances. See the entry: Walter de Coutances.
