Biography/Description

Include 58 canonistic quaestiones of English origin, composed c.1196–98. The collection represents one of the most important sources for the teaching activities of several English masters (such as Simon de Sywell, Simon de Derby, Johannes de Chent, Johannes de Tynmouth), whose names occur in the discussions and solutions of many of the quaestiones. A reportatio of disputations held by another English canonist, Nicholas (de Aquila) seems to form the core of the material.
