Report No. a097

Collectio Ambianensis


Alternative Names



Part of the Bambergensis-Group, a group of twelve closely related Decretal collections. Walter Deeters has postulated that all members of the Bambergensis-group sprang from an archetype, ‘Urbambergensis’, consisting of 418 items in 56 titles. This putative collection would have been produced c.1180. The eleven manuscripts containing members of the B.-group were then produced over more than two decades and were influenced by other collections.
