Fragmentum Sancti Edmundi



Alternative Names

Fragmentum Arundelianum



Fragment of an unsystematic decretal collection belonging to the ‘Lucensis Group’ of collections appearing after Compilatio prima. The fragment is heavily mutilated but preserves a total of eleven items, one of which is complete and two of which are nearly so. All eleven also appear in the Collectio Lucensis, but some have superior text. Probably copied at the abbey of Bury St Edmunds c.1200 during the abbatiate of Samson of Tottington (d. 1211).
