Report No. a213

Collectio Parisiensis tertia



Alternative Names



19 decretals of Alexander III, 18 of which are copied in their complete form. The collection is of the primitve type and presents Alexander’s decretals in a very early form in the canonical tradition. The collection’s relationship to other decretal collections is as yet undetermined; not to be confused with the sophisticated, systematic collection at one time named identically but now called the Collectio Rotomagensis prima.
