Report No. a106

Collectio Bridlingtonensis



Alternative Names

Bridlington collection



Primitive collection with 193 items. Substantive rubrics were included at the time of compilation, but decretals were not divided into separate titles. Manuscript has marginal glosses, mostly cross-references to other decretals. This collection is closely related to the Claudiana; both stem from an archetype from Canterbury from c.1181. It dates from c.1182 and comes from Northern England, perhaps Bridlington Priory.
