Report No. a174




Alternative Names



Appear in a strata of Bolognese glosses composed during the 1180s. They might or might not be related to David of London, whose canonistic activities date to a time prior to the 1170s. As an alternative, Weigand suggests a possible identity with Magister Daifer.



No. 1

d.-glosses, 1180s. Attribution remains uncertain; three of the glosses in the Cambridge manuscript (Ca) have been identified as belonging to Dauidus Londinensis.
