Marriage Tract: ‘Summa de matrimonio Magistri Vacarii



Alternative Names

Duo sola sunt que audacem me semper faciunt ad scribendum



The attribution to Vacarius is solid. Its connection with the well-known Anstey case seems likely. If that is right, then a connection with the second iteration of the Anstey case, in the early 1160’s, also seems likely.
