Report No. a557

Transformatio Decreti Oxoniensis

late 12th c.


Alternative Names



Offers, for the most part, a copy of the Decretum. It distinguishes Gratian’s own dicta from the canonical chapters of the Decretum by relegating the former to the margin. In addition, the text is preceded by material of partly different origin, which has been grouped in 37 distinctiones. Significantly, the first deals, unlike Gratian, with the primacy of the Roman bishop.
