Report No. a099

Collectio Atrebatensis

c. 1175


Alternative Names



Consists of decretals of Pope Alexander III which for the most part were directed to Henry, bishop of Beauvais (1149–61), and later archbishop of Reims (1162–75). Other letters likewise point to the diocese of Reims (St. Remi?) as the place from which the collection originated. The collection shows some resemblance to the Collectio Jacques Sirmond (ca. 1173).
