Report No. a428

Quaestiones decretales Bambergenses II

post 1191


Alternative Names



Consist of rather briefly formulated quaestiones which were compiled some time after Compilatio prima (1191). They are transmitted, with due variations, in at least seven manuscripts, of which the Klosterneuburg and Bamberg (also Leon) manuscripts on the one hand, and the Vienna and the Zwettl texts on the other, seem to be related particularly closely.
