Report No. a452

Quaestiones Orielenses I–II

ante 1191


Alternative Names



A collection of probably English origin, which includes several decretal-references, but does not cite any after Compilatio prima (1191). The information about another set of quaestiones in the same Oxford manuscript is scanty. They cite Vacarius and may represent one of the few traces of his teaching at an English school.
