Biography/Description

A concise ordo iudiciarius setting forward the various exceptiones, or procedural objections, that could be made in a case. Survives in at least three versions, the earliest of which predates the Liber Extra. The last version was widespread. Attributed to Innocent IV in early edition, but attribution has little to no historical basis.
