Report No. a434

Quaestiones Gratianopolitanae



Alternative Names



Contain an early collection of canonistic quaestiones which cites only one papal decretal (q.242). This suggests a date well before the appearance of Compilatio prima in 1191. Many of the texts include references to the Bolognese civilian Martinus, cited alongside with a certain ‘Johannes’. A. Belloni has identified him with Johannes Bazianus rather than Johannes Faventinus.
