Among the various aspects of the operation of canon law in medieval England, the history of the Anglo-Norman school of canonists which flourished in the late twelfth and the early thirteenth centuries remains largely unexplored. Modern historians have frequently emphasized, to be sure, the eager interest which English churchmen of the twelfth century took in problems and issues of canon law; and it can now be considered an established fact that the English Church throughout this period was well abreast of the developments which everywhere resulted from the growing centralization of ecclesiastical procedure, from the work of Gratian and his school, and from the ever-increasing number of authoritative responses and appellate decisions rendered by the popes in their decretal letters. The importance of the system of delegate jurisdiction in the cases referred back by Rome to the country of origin has been noted, and so has the conspicuous number of twelfth-century English collections of decretals, which testifies to a particular zeal and tradition, among Anglo-Norman canonists, in supplementing Gratian's work by records of the new papal law. The problem, also, of the influence exercised by Roman and canon law on the early development of the Common Law is being discussed with growing interest among students of English legal and constitutional history.

1 As Barraclough, G., English Historical Review 53 (1938) 492–5 (book review), and Cheney, M. Mrs., ‘The Compromise of Avranches of 1172 and the Spread of Canon Law in England,’ ibid. 56 (1941) 177-97, have shown, it can no longer be maintained that the flow of decretals to England began after 1172 only and that the English Church, up till then, lagged behind in the full knowledge and practice of canon law, as was held by Brooke, Z. N., ‘The Effect of Becket's Murder on Papal Authority in England,’ Cambridge Historical Journal 2 (1926–8) 213-28; The English Church and the Papacy (Cambridge 1931) 213f. But aside from this point, the late Dr. Brooke's work remains fundamental in many respects; it definitely laid to rest the old controversy on the authority of the common law of the Church in England. — Cf. further Cheney, C. R., ‘Legislation of the Medieval English Church,’ Engl. Hist.

5 The plan of the present paper was outlined when the co-authors first met early in 1947 and decided to pool the results of their research, some of which had been stated by both authors independently in unpublished lectures since 1938. For various reasons this article, originally designed to appear in 1948, could only recently be made ready for publication.

11 Peter refers to the canons of the Decretum mostly by their inscription alone (ex octava synodo, ex synodo Eugenii papae etc., cf. PL 207, 70f.), which corresponds neither to the Bolognese nor to the early French style (on the latter, cf. Repertorium 171, 173). It is perhaps characteristic that he solves the first part of the proposed question ultimately ‘assertione iuris civilis,’ i.e. by paraphrasing Dig. 2.1.15, and the second part, without giving any argument of authority at all. Whether he ought to have discussed the pertinent decretal JL 14061 (X 3.32.3) of Alexander III (cf. Goussainville's note, PL 207, 71 n.50) remains an open question as long as the date of ep. 19 is unsettled.

7 Two early treatises of a similar type, written in a hand of the twelfth century, are found in MS Brit. Mus. Royal 10.B.iv (from Christ Church, Canterbury) fol. 33-41: ‘Iudicandi formam in utroque iure,’ and fol. 59r-v: ‘Iudicium est trinus personarum trium actus,’ with several other civilian and canonistic treatises (including Peter of Blois' Distinctiones, cf. Repertorium 220, and an extract de praescriptionibus from Stephen of Tournai's Summa, cf. below, IV n.8), two decretal collections (cf. Repertorium 282; Holtzmann, , Über eine Ausgabe 22) and the Lateran Decrees of 1179 (fol. 62ra). The treatises on procedure will be discussed elsewhere.

9 Kantorowicz, H., Studies in the Glossators of the Roman Law (Cambridge 1938) 72, listing editions of twelfth-century Ordines, speaks of ‘unusual, even excessive attention.’ In the case of Ricardus Anglicus, for example, two modern editions are available of his Ordo, but his other works have remained unprinted to this day. — It is certainly correct that the study of law in Bologna was closely bound up with ars notaria and dictamen (Richardson, , Oxford Law School 331ff.), but it is very debatable whether one can lay all the stress (p. 336) on the ‘intensely practical’ nature of the school.

8 To the single English MS of Stephen's Summa listed in Repertorium 135 (Worcester MS Q.44) may now be added the fragment (to D.30 C.17-D.39 c.11) in Queen's College, Oxford, MS 317 (fol. 140ra-142va) from Reading (I should like to thank Dr. R. Klibansky for drawing my attention to this codex. E. R.). An extract de praescriptionibus from Stephen's Summa to C.16 q.3 is found in Cambridge, Trinity College MS O.7.40 (fol.176v; cf. Repert. 135 n.7) from St. Augustine's, Canterbury, and in Brit. Mus. Royal MS 10.B.IV (fol. 42) from Christ Church.

12 Jo. Sar. ep. 284 (‘*** scienti legem loquor’: PL 199, 320B); but the term might also denote the lex mosayca. — This Odo is not to be confused with Odo, prior of Canterbury (1167) and later abbot of Battle, cf. Schaarschmidt, C., Johannes Saresberiensis nach Leben und Schriften (Leipzig 1862) 273 and Webb's, C. J. note in his edition of the Policraticus (Oxford 1909) I, 7 line 17; Webb suggests (ibid. II, 205) that he may be the Odo whose letter to Gilbert Foliot is wrongly prefixed to the Ysagoge in theologiam in Cambridge, Trinity College MS B.xiv.33 (on which see Landgraf, A., Ecrits théologiques de l'école d'Abélard [Spicilegium sacrum Lovan. 14; 1936] xlivf.)

13 The list given above is selective. English work might also be represented by certain transformations (Repertorium 269-71) and abbreviations (ibid. 261f.) of the Decretum in English MSS, as e.g. the Abbreviatio Lex alia divina est (Brit. Mus. MS Harley 3842, based on Omnibonus) or the Abbreviatio Matrimonium est (London, Lambeth MS 139, from Lanthony). For an unusual copy of the Decretum from Lanthony, in Lambeth MS 449, cf.

22 They are not set off in Dom Morey's edition from the canons quoted and therefore not always easy to recognize. Some dicta are of importance for understanding the structure of the work, e.g., cc.5-7 (p. 177 lin. 23-178.9), cc.10-11 (181.27-182), c.22 (191.32-192.22); others contain summulae, e.g., c. 25 (194.6-16), c.26 (195.2-14); others again, interpretations.

23 E.g. c. 58, where the distinction ‘qui non omnem quam debuit diligentiam adhibuit’ (223.14-19), follows Rufinus (to D. 50 c.37; ed. Singer, , Die Summa Decretorum des Magister Rufinus [Paderborn 1902] 126); in c.117 the restrictive interpretation of C. 33 q.2 c.12 (279.25-31) is based on Rufinus ad loc. (500 Singer).

24 Compare, e.g., the summulae on excommunication (c. 118, p. 280) and perjury (c. 73, p. 241) with the contemporary commentaries to C.11 q.3 and C.22 q.2. By contrast, note the reference in c.73 to English law, ‘iudicia uero que uulgo leges aperte uocantur,’ (241.34; cf. Liebermann, , Die Gesetze der Angelsachsen [Halle 1903–16] I, 583 and references; ibid. Index s.v lex.). Cf. above, note 21.

25 Cf. Morey 173f. and notes to the edition, passim. E.g. c.24 (192.34-194.4), c.47 (214.21-32), c.71 (240.13-29; the source is Ivo, , Decr. 6.397), c.72 (240.31-241.14; the source is Burch. Decr. 19.42), c.73 (241.37-242.21; Burch. 12.14, 8, 9 or Ivo 12.71, 65, 66), c.117 (279.32-280.4), c.128 (286.28-287.15) etc.

26 For its influence on Robert of Flamborough and the treatise De iniungendis penitentiis cf. Morey, , op. cit. 171; Anciaux, P, La théologie du sacrement de pénitence au XII e siècle (Louvain 1949) 129-30. Its relation to the Notabilia on excommunication and penance (above, n.2; Repertorium 240) needs to be investigated.

27 Repertorium 156, 197.

28 Ibid. 198204. To the evidence for the English origin of the Summa In nomine the passage ‘*** hinc argumentum precipue commendandam esse ecclesie anglicane institutionem’ (fol. 363r) may be added. (An error in the original foliation of Oriel MS 53, thus far unnoticed, makes the following corrections of references necessary : Summa In nom. fols. 356r-363v, Quaest. Oriel. 338r-339v, Coll. Oriel. I and II, 340r-349v, 353r-354v [cited as fobs. 256, 238 etc. in Repert. 199, 249, 295 and elsewhere].)

29 Repert. 13, 24, 26. The glosses of Olmütz, Cathedral Chapter MS 266 (set iv, added to three earlier, Bolognese strata) are related at least to the Summa Et est sciendum (Repertorium 195), one of the chief sources of Omnis qui iuste.

30 Caillemer, , Le droit civil etc. (above, II n.15) 182. Schulte, , Die Geschichte der Quellen und Literatur des canonischen Rechts von Gratian bis auf die Gegenwart I (Stuttgart 1875) 233 believes that the Ordo and the Summa Omnis qui iuste may even be written by the same author.

31 These glosses are found particularly in the section on marriage (fol. 155ff.); like the Summa itself (cf. Traditio 6, 349 n.38) they cite decretals from the Appendix Conc. Lat.

G. inducit quasi sit abrogatum, et Melendus sentit cum eo et omnes qui dicunt ueritatem sacramentorum non esse apud heréticos ***.’ But G. is here Gratian who rejects c.8 in the dictum that follows; cf. also dict. ante c.8 and the Nota correctorum.

26 Earlier studies on Godfrey of St. Victor (cf. Manitius, M., Geschichte der lateinischen Literatur des Mittelalters III [Munich 1931] 779) have now been largely superseded by the researches of Ph. Delhaye; cf. Revue du moyen âge latin 3 (1947) 225-41; Revue bénédictine 58 (1948) 93-109, and particularly his two volumes, Le Microcosmus de Godefroy de Saint-Victor: EditionEtude théologique (Mémoires et travaux des Facultés catholiques de Lille 56-7; Lille-Gembloux 1951). Delhaye has refuted the traditional identification of Godfrey of St. Victor with Geoffroy de Breteuil; on the possibility of assigning to the Victorine master the Summa Elegantius he expresses himself with the greatest reserve (op. cit. II, 196-8). One might add that the one passage on moralis sapientia and law in which Delhaye finds a vague similarity with some verses of Godfrey's Fons philosophiae (p.198) does not even belong to the author but to the glossator of the Summa (cf. n.18 above), and that elsewhere Godfrey shows a certain contempt for canonists: ‘nullus erit nisi sit loquax decretista’ (Fons phil. 24.2, ed.

Patetta, , ‘Sull'introduzione del Digesto a Bologna,’ Rivista italiana per le scienze giuridiche 14 (1892) 66–7. The title, ‘lucubratiuncule egidii’ (in cipher, cf. Patetta loc. cit.) is certainly recherché and may have been suggested by classical or patristic reminiscences, cf. Fronto, , Epp. ad Marcum Caes. 1.4(3); Pliny, , N.H. praef. 24; St. Jerome, , epp. 117.2, 119.1; the text begins (ad v. Humanum genus) ‘Recentes auditorum animi ***.’As far as one can judge from the brief fragment, which covers only D.1 pr.-c.7, the work was to contain quaestiones decretales. Egidius depends very much on the Summa of Simon of Bisignano (c. 1177–9); in addition, he cites ste. (probably Stephen of Tournai), Master Aldric (on whom cf. Savigny, , Geschichte IV, 231-6; Johannes Bassianus called him ‘aliquis utpote subtilissimus,’ cf. Kantorowicz, , Studies in the Glossators 54), an unidentifiable Master blā. (cf. the text below, Appendix B) and Gerard Pucelle. This suggests that Egidius may have belonged to one of the Western schools rather than to that of Bologna; the literary type (cf. below, ch. VI on quaestiones decretales) would seem to point in the same direction.

Google Scholar

33 The full quotation is printed and discussed below, Appendix B. — One of the two marginal notes added by another hand to Egidius' fragment is signed ‘secundum bazianum’ (d. 1197) and reads (to D.1 c.7) : ‘Set fertur M. G. sic dixisse quia sicut facilius possum tibi ostendere quod non sit deus quam quod sit, ita facilius possum ostendere quod non sit ius naturale quam quod sit.’ This observation is certainly characteristic of the spirit of intellectual adventure among the twelfth-century scholastics, but whether G. here refers to Gerard remains very doubtful.

34 It is not mentioned by other scholars (Seckel, Kantorowicz, Meijers) who have studied the codex Sessorianus after 1892 for the miscellaneous civilian writings it contains. We may add here that among its various unrecorded items (fol. 75ff.) there is a fragment of the Summa of Sicardus (fol.78r-79v).

Introd. lxxxv, rightly expresses ‘considerable doubts’ as to Wenck's interpretation, which referred this gloss to the controversy on primatial rights between the sees of Canterbury and York.) The passage of Justinian's Code on which the gloss was written reads: ‘Sacrilegii instar est divinis super quibuscumque administrationibus vel dignitatibus promulgandis obviare beneficiis.’ Among the complaints of Dean Simon and the chapter against the archbishop, adjudicated by Celestine III on 8 June 1194 (JL 17121), there is one for which this lex could well be cited as an argumentum: Geoffrey, the chapter claimed, had refused to reinstate disseized canons and clerks, spurning every mandate of restitution (cf. Rog. Hov. III, 280). Or perhaps the gloss refers to the incident when Simon on his return from Rome, in February 1195, was forcibly prevented by the archbishop's familiares from making his entrance as dean in the Cathedral (ibid. 283f.).

26 Ibid. 158f.; Po. 1260 (3 February 1201, wrongly dated anno quarto by Stubbs, , ibid. 160). The liberties at issue were chiefly: (1) freedom from episcopal censures against the clergy of the archdeaconry (cf. Po. 1260); (2) the archdeacon's right of institution to benefices and (3) his custodia of vacant churches in the archdeaconry (cf. Po. 1260, 1285). Geoffrey insisted that all these had been conceded only as personal privileges to one of Honorius‘ predecessors (William de Chemillé [Chimely], archd. 1189–96; cf. Rog. Hov. III, 16; IV, 12, 37, below, VII n.7); that in conferring the archdeaconry upon Honorius he had expressly reserved the said rights; and moreover, that the latter had renounced them formally in writing. Honorius maintained that the franchises belonged to the archdeaconry as such; that the archbishop had reserved them only after the conferral; and that he, Honorius, had renounced these libertates under duress and for tactical reasons, after having been dispossessed by the archbishop; the act of renunciation on the part of a spoliatus being invalid at canon law (cf. Po. 1285: Rog. Hov. IV, 177ff. and X 3.7.6; cf. also Po. 1692 [PL 214, 1023C] for his denial that he had renounced the archdeaconry itself). Stubbs’ unfavorable opinion of Honorius in this matter (Rog. Hov. IV, lxxii) is unjustified.

27 Rog. Hov. IV, 158; Po. 1260–62 (ibid. 159, 177, 181). Also the mandate Po. 1311 (fragment, without address or date; ibid. 181) belongs to this phase of the struggle; it is probably the letter addressed to the bishop of Ely and the abbot of Waltham, mentioned in Po. 1260.

29 Po. 1285, anno quarto (the date 22 February - March 1201 in Potthast is too narrow). The textual transmission of the letter (transl. Thompson, A.

Quite apart from the cuts in the latter, there are many divergencies; thus the name of William de Chemillé (cf. note 26 above; Friedberg, , Corp. iur. Can. II, 485 n.15 ad loc.) is missing in Hoveden's text, and the passage ‘cui archidiaconus competebat’ (Rog. Hov. IV, 178.15-18; cf. Friedberg ibid. between nn. 16 and 17) is certainly corrupt, etc.

41 Saltet, , Réordinations 320f., 338 n.1. Honorius ultimately sides with G. (p. 338), the Summa Omnis qui iuste, with Jo. (p. 334 n.3). Since Gandulph did not treat of this matter in his Sententiarum libri IV (ed. von Walter, J., Vienna 1924), the attribution to him of the opinion of Master G. on ordinatio ambulatoria (Saltet 318ff.; cf. Walter, , Introd. xxxvi ff.; de Ghellinck, , Mouvement théol. 322 n.5) remains but an attractive conjecture, whereas Jo. is certainly John of Faenza (cf. e.g. the quotations in Glos. ord. to C.9 q.1). Gandulph's name is nowhere given in full in the texts relating to the controversy (see also the Bolognese glosses quoted by Saltet 354; in the text of Sum. Omnis qui iuste quoted p. 320 n.1, ‘.*** contra sententiam Gandulphi,’ the name has been expanded by the editor; cf. p. 335 and the MSS). On the other hand, G. cannot stand for Gerard Pucelle, who held the opposite opinion (ibid. 355); and Dr. Ullmann's suggestion, Jurid. Review 60 (1948) 179, to refer the siglum to Willielmus Vasco (Guascus, Gulilelmus, fl. c. 1210–30) must be rejected on paleographical as well as chronological grounds; for William's career and writings cf. Traditio 1, 336-40; Engl. Hist. Rev. 60 (1945) 105.

42 E.g. below n.82. To cite only one other example, the discussion of six meanings of the term ius naturale (cf. Repertorium 201-4) recurs almost verbatim in Honorius, dist. 3 tit. 1.

43 Leipzig, Universitätsbibliothek MS 986, fol. 42v; Laon MS 371bis. fol. 95rb (Summa De iure can.) and 173va (Honorius). For another example see below, Appendix C.

44 According to the Summa, the decretal JL 13912 Presbyterum (addressed to Bartholomew of Exeter) would seem to be part of Alexander III's famous response to Bartholomew on the legitimation of natural children, JL 13917 Tanta est vis. This is also asserted, in the same context, by Ricardus Anglicus: ‘*** Alex, enim quendam sacerdotem post homicidium commisum qui annis .xii. penitentiam agunt (sic) sacerdotio restituit in capitulo illo quod incipit Tanta est uis, uocatque eos inperitos qui sacerdotem reparari non posse opinantur post dignam penitentiam ***’ (Summa quaestionum [cf. below, ch. IX] Montecassino MS 396, p. 199b). But the actual opening section of JL 13917 (Meminimus, cf. App. 33.1, Sang. 9.32) must have remained unknown to the two canonists.

45 Cf. Traditio 6, 349 n.39; additional evidence may be found even in the text printed by Schulte, , SB Vienna 66, 60–4; e.g. p. 62 ‘extra. de ordinat. fi(liorum) sa(cerdotum)’ (App. tit. 19); p. 64 ‘extra, de iure patr. Dilectus’ (App. 47.2; not in 1 Comp. but 2 Comp. 3.24.1).

46 See e.g. Hon. de iure patr. 2.15 q.1: ‘*** Vel secundum S' ius patronatus merum (mixtum?) est spirituale nec de mero iure set dumtaxat ex dispensatione canonum est ***’ (Laon MS 371bis, fol. 176r; the text of Bamberg, printed by Schulte loc. cit. 61 lin. 5-6 is corrupt). Cf. Simon de Bisignano on C.16 q.7 in Schulte, , SB Vienna 63, 322f. For a passage of doubtful reading, which only at first sight seems to quote Huguccio, cf. Appendix C.

47 Preface: ‘ utile duximus sub tripartita colligere distinctione, quarum (om. Schulte) prima continet questiones ad ordinem iudiciarium pertinentes, secunda metas (meras Sch.) decretales ad ministros altarisque ministeria spectantes, tertia matrimoniales ’ (Douai MS 640, fol. Ira; Schulte, , SB Vienna 66, 58). The term ‘titulus’ is not used in the preface, but frequently in cross-references, e.g. 1.8 de confessione: ‘*** contraria capitula habes supra t. de accusatione’ (Douai fol. 7rb); 2.4 de potestate ligandi et solvendi: '*** quere supra t. de notoriis (fol. 16va), etc. — A list of titles is given by Schulte, , loc. cit. 59f., but there seem to be variations in the MSS.

48 In the Douai MS these two titles (de iure naturali, de prohibitionibus) occupy nearly twelve columns (fol. 26rb-29rb), one-seventh of the whole codex. — It may be observed here that at the end of part III several MSS contain various additions. The last title, de errore conditionis, is followed in the Douai MS, fol. 42vb, by a quaestio reportata, ‘Cuidam coniugato dampnato ad mortem donatur uita si intret monasterium Magister adhesit huic parti, quicquid uideatur theologis.’ In Leipzig, Universitätsbibliothek MS 984, the following question is appended: ‘Queritur si Lazarus resurgeret an posset uxorem repetere ***.’; this problem belonged to the traditional stock of scholastic discussions, cf. the Summa Et est sciendum (Glos. Stuttg. as quoted in Gillmann, AKKR 107 [1927] 220), Huguccio (ibid. 221 n.1), and a collection of quaestiones reportatae from the school of Bazianus in Montecassino MS 396 (p. 84b-112b) q.3 (p. 86a). — Such accretions prove the use made of Honorius' work in the schools, as does also the addition of marginal notes by later readers, e.g. in MS Douai 640 (quoting decretals of Innocent III from Comp. III).

49 Repertorium 151f. 171. For the system of the Summa Elegantius, fifteen partes subdivided in tituli, see Gillmann, , AKKR 106 (1926) 533–41, and particularly the table of contents prefixed to the Vienna codex (MS 2125, fol. 1-10r), which is authentic, as stated in the epilogue: ‘*** Tytulatim autem opos (sic) hoc distinximus tytolosque omnes cum sua numerorum adiectione prenotare curauimus, ut lectori per hanc diligentiam quid quesierit sine difficultate occurat’ (fol. 154).

50 Repertorium 221. Occasionally there is a certain topical coherence among Peter's distinctiones, e.g. cc. 34-42 on coactio; cf. also Reimarus, , Petri Blesensis opusculum de distinctionibus (Berlin 1837) Introd. xxi.

51 Repertorium 425. The title de crimine (2.8), for example, has a very long summa; tit. 2.4 begins without any continuatio : ‘De potestate ligandi et soluendi queritur utrum heretici hanc habeant ’; for various continuationes cf. Schulte, , SB Vienna 66, 59f.

His description makes it clear that these were not quaestiones disputatae: it was he himself, not the auditores, who argued the causae decretales, using legum et canonum rationes and rhetoricae persuasiones. Gerald has preserved the inception, ‘Proposueram prius audire ***,’ (p. 46f.) and the topic of his first quaestio (p. 47) : ‘utrum iudex secundum allegata iudicare debeat an iuxta conscientiam,’ which was one of the most widely discussed problems for civilians and canonists alike; cf. references in Kantorowicz, , Studies in the Glossators 21 n.19; Glos. ord. ad C.3 q.7 c.4 v. audit; ad C.30 q.5 p.c.9 v credenda; ad X 1.31.1 v. quod canones censent, etc.

71 The quaestiones of Angers MS 312, fol. 129r-136v (Repertorium 251) are, however, to be eliminated: the fragment can be identified as q.5-q.10 c.15 of Courson's, Robert Summa.

72 Our thanks are due Abbé G. Fransen for contributing this interesting discovery.

73 The MS has been reexamined after the first mention made in Repert. 255. (The fragment fol. 103ra-va belongs to a treatise on procedure.)

74 The codex, from Mont-Saint-Michel, contains the Collectio decretalium Abrincensis, the Comp. I and miscellaneous other canonistic material (cf. e.g. Traditio 1, 299 n.40, 312 nn.19-20, 323 n.17 [ii]). Immediately preceding the Summa quaestionum is a group of quaestiones disputatae, of French origin, after 1210 (beg. ‘Dominus papa contulit cuidam monasterio tale priuilegium’).

75 These may belong together with other quaest. disp. in the same codex, fol. 143-148v (‘Papa scribit episcopo parisiensi ***’), fol. 156r. Cf. Trad. 1, 324 n.22a.

The pope's quip on that occasion, about Robert and his masters having drunk too much beer, does not necessarily imply a reflection on the quality of English learning but repeats only a standing Bolognese joke; cf. e.g. Ricardus Anglicus, preface to the Distinctiones : ‘*** resistentes atramento uelut anglicus inebriabo’ (MS Vat. lat. 2691, fol. 1).

6 The possibility of English origin of the gloss compositions in Worcester MS F.122 and Lambeth MS 105 (cf.

I (cf. Gillmann, , in AKKR 107 [1927] 618).

13 Thomas of Marlborough, who, after having taught at Oxford, upon the pope's advice attended classes at Bologna in 1205 between hearings of the Evesham case (cf. above, II n.2), cannot be counted in the same category.

Processes II, 3; Innsbruck 1915) xiii-xvi: ‘blosse Vermutung oder gar Fabel’; but Richard Grant (Wethershed), chancellor of Lincoln (1221–9) and archbishop of Canterbury (1229–31) is still mentioned as a possibility by Glorieux, P., Répertoire des maîtres en théologie de Paris au XIIIe siècle (Paris 1933–4) I, 1280f.

15 Cheney, C. R., English Synodalia of the Thirteenth Century (Oxford 1941) 52ff. Russell, J. C., Dictionary of Writers of Thirteenth Century England (London etc. 1936) 112, 136 suggests with good reason that the identification of the canonist with Richard Poore rests on a confusion of the latter with St. Richard de Wych, who had had legal training before he became chancellor of Oxford (c. 1235), chancellor of Archbishop Edmund (c. 1237–40), and bishop of Chichester (1244–53; cf. Bokyng's, Ralph Vita of c. 1270 in Acta Sanctorum Apr. I, 286), and to whom later legend ascribed years of study in exemplary poverty at Bologna and Paris (Capgrave's, John Vita, ibid. 278b); the legend being thereafter transferred to Master Richard ‘the poor,’ bishop of Chichester 1215–7

20 The first of these was cited in Repert. 231, but with wrong classification.

21 Examples below, Appendix E : Dist. 1-3, C. 16 qq. 4-5 (descriptive); Dist. 75, C. 18 q.2 (discussions), and passim for query and answer style.

22 Anticlaud. 2.1.7-21 (PL 210, 498f.), cf. Warner, and Gilson, , Cat. Royal MSS I, 336. The Summa omits vv. 9, 14-15 of the original and changes ‘indocta docere’ (v.8) to ‘in iure docere’ (v.2 above). Slight variants in the MSS of the Summa have not been noted here.

23 C.1 q.1: ‘Queritur an possint bona spiritualia uendi ***,’ D(ublin MS 275, p.) 171b; q.2: ‘An sit ob ingressum fas ecclesie dare quicquam ***’; q.4: ‘Criminibus patris maculetur an inscia proles’; q.5: ‘An patris ob munus promotus iure ministret ***,’ (ibid.) etc. Further examples in the following notes and below, Appendix E, also for rhymed prose (C.25 q.1).

24 ‘lincoliensis’ D 183b; ‘lineosis’ Rein MS 86, fol. 5v; ‘linconensis’ Zwettl MS 162, fol. 70r (for the separate tradition of the distichs in this MS see below, at n.66).

25 Dist. 92 : ‘Additur quod cantandum sit plus corde quam ore, vt in con. later. Cum in sacris (c.3)’; C. 10 q.3: ‘Quanta dari debet sinodalis summa per annum? Resp. duo solidi nomine cathedratici, vt in con. later. Cum apostolus (c.4) extra. tit. de censibus (1 Comp. 3.34.6).’ D 171a, 174a. The references to Comp. I are never given as ‘extra I.’ (the statement to the contrary in Repert. 231 was based on a misunderstanding, see note 27).

26 C. 15 q.1: ‘Queritur an quod agit furibundo sit reputandum (leg. imputandum). R(espondeo) cum magistro hugone simpliciter quod non, nec admitto quorumdam distinctionem ***,’ D 175b. For Huguccio's doctrine cf. Kanonistische Schuldlehre (above, n.4) 107f.

27 Also ‘dic ut distinxi ex. j(nfra) e(adem) ***’ (D 175a), misinterpreted as reference to ‘extra I,’ in Repert. 231.

28 E.g. Dist. 17 : ‘Cuius auctoritate fiant concilia distingue ut eadem distinctione scripsi sufficienter’ (D 169; cf. Richard's Distinctiones, MS Vat. lat. 2691, fol. 1v: ‘Concilium generale uel uniuersale quod fit speciali auctoritate domini pape; particulare uel speciale; episcopale uel singulare ***’); Dist. 19 : ‘Quam uim optinent decretales soluo per distinctionem hic extra. positam’ (D 169; cf. Dist. MS Vat. ibid.: ‘Decretalis epistola specialis, que dirigitur ad unam prouinciam hec non trahuntur ad consequentiam, nisi prouincia uel persona exempli causa apponatur; generalis, que omnibus dirigitur tenenda. hec trahit ad consequentiam ***’).

MS lat. 14859, fol. 390v (a penitential book from St. Victor) there is a quotation, ‘Ricardus dicit in summa decretorum ***.’; but we find that over the R a small S has been written as if by correction (=Sicardus).

40 The passage from Tancred's Ordo has been frequently quoted, cf. Wahrmund, , loc. cit.; the method of quaedam compilatio which Richard imitated was of course that of the Decretum, not of the Liber pauperum, as de Zulueta ( suggests.

41 Above, IV at n.10. The same method is found in the Summa Elegantius, the Summa Quoniam omissis (above V, n.20), the Rhetorica ecclesiastica (cf. E. Ott, in SB Vienna 125 [1891] 95), the Ordo Olim, etc.

42 Ordo c. 37 ‘*** secundum Ascelinum’ (ed. Wahrmund, p. 86, variants in n. 25; interpreted as reference to Azo in the Introduction, p. xxiv). On Ascelinus see de Zulueta, , Lib. paup. xx n.29, xxxiii, cxiii.

48 For opposition see e.g. de iure patr. 23.11 (below, App. E).

49 For example, above, VI nn.43-44. On the renting of matresses by the students in Paris, the question is formulated in Sum. Circa ius nat. almost verbatim as in Sum. Omnis qui iuste (above VI, n.82; M 215b, Z 156va). On a problem of marriage, ‘magister h(ugo) de sancto victore’ is quoted by both authors in the same words (Schulte, , SB Vienna 68 [1871] 46; M 235b). Cf. also n.54 below; examples could be given from almost every title.

50 Traditio 6, 349 nn.38-9.

51 For Omnis qui iuste this was already recognized by Schulte, , SB Vienna 68, 50f.; for Circa ius nat. see examples below, nn. 52, 61, and App.E. Sometimes the references are helpful for the reconstruction of the original papal letters, e.g. tit. 32 de enormitate delicti: ‘*** quod non debet uir conuerti nisi uxor similiter conuertatur, aliter autem si factum fuerit, si et consensu mulieris ingressus fuerit, reuocatur ad thorum illius, vt in ex. Intelleximus’ (M 235a, Z 168ra), which shows that X 3.32.1 (JL 13946+13948-9; cf. Lohmann, ZRG Kan. Abt. 22 [1933] 73) is part of JL 13950, thus confirming a marginal note to App. 26.24 (JL 13948) in Mansi 22, 372.

52 M 208b (de appell. tit.11) : ‘*** nam et ordinarius recusari potest, et deligatas (sic) eodem modo potest recusari, vt in ex. Ad aures.’ Lucius III, JL 14965-6 (X 2.28.36).

Et dicunt quod huiusmodi sanguinis effusio ecclesiam non polluit set consecrat’ (M 239a). Cf. Sum. Omnis qui iuste to De cons. D.1 c.19 v. homicidio : ‘Quid si in ecclesia martir occidatur ut in cantuariensi ecclesia contigit? Dicunt quod talis ecclesia non est consecranda quia huiusmodi ***.’ (Rouen MS 743, fol. 134rb).

56 De rescriptis (tit.26) : '*** Item quid si causa committatur G. archid. parisiensis ecclesie et sunt tres in eadem quorum quilibet uocatur g. : numquid expirat iurisdictio ? Ad primum dicimus quod si possit de persona (de)legati constare cui scil. sit demandatum, mandatum erit ualidum (M 224b).

59 The following observations are based on collations kindly supplied by Dr. Ullmann, who has examined Z in detail and generously put at our disposal an unpublished note of his. We are also indebted to Abbé Fransen for several collations.

60 De perplex. (tit.3); ‘*** in ecclesia parisiensi in ecclesia caporiensi’ (sic; M 194b); ‘*** in ecclesia bononiensi in ecclesia mutinensi’ (Z 146vb).

61 De elect. (tit.7) ‘*** sicut ergo tenet electio ab omnibus uel a maiori parte facta, vt in con (cilio) l(ateranensi) Cum in cunctis, expresse hoc colligitur ex quodam c(apitulo) alex. iii. Causam’ (M 197b); the references (3 Conc. Lat. 3 and JL 14070) changed to ‘ut ex. de elect. Cum in cunctis ex quodam cap. alex. iii. de elect. et el. pot. Causam’ in Z 148ra (1 Comp. 1.4.16, 17). — De lapsis (tit.9) : ‘*** etiam si conuicti fuerint uel confessi, poterit dispensari, vt c. alex. iii. Licet preter’ (M 199b: JL 14091); changed to ‘ex. de iudiciis, Aut (sic) si clerici’ in Z 149ra (1 Comp. 2.1.6). — De conuictis (tit.12) : ‘ item alex. iii. dicit laicos non posse admitti vt in ex. Licet preter’ (M 204b); changed to ‘ex. de iudic. De cetero’ in Z 151rb (1 Comp. 2.1.7). — De spoliatis (tit.14) : ‘*** .restitutionem petere potest, vt in ex. In litteris’ (M 206b); reference (JL 14219) changed to ‘ex. de restit. exspol. Ex litteris’ in Z 152rb (1 Comp. 2.9.5). Elsewhere M and Z agree in their references.

62 Z 148ra : ‘Item queritur si patronus alicuius ecclesie semet elegerit an possit. Dicitur quod non, ut ex. t. de iure patronatus, Per nostras’ (Po. 275; Gilb. 3.24.3). Dr. Ullmann points this out.

63 The contents of Zwettl MS 162 are listed in Traditio 1, 323 n.18. Of other MSS, only the following contain more than one work: Vat. lat. 2691 (Dist. and Ordo, cf. Repert. 223, 225), Douai 644 (the same, ibid. 222, 225), Avranches 149 (Brocarda and App. Comp. I, cf. Trad. 1, 299 n.40 and 312 n.20)

64 Trad 1, 323 n.18 (i); beg. ‘Materia auctoris in hoc opere.’

65 Ibid. (vii, viii, x).

66 Ibid. (v). The opening notabile is Prov. 30.33 as quoted by St. Gregory to Augustine of England (D. 4 c.6); another collection of Notabilia (B.M. MS Addit. 18325, cf. Repert. 235) begins with the same proverb, and Simon of Apulia quoted it in his quarrel with Honorius (Rog. Hov. IV, 53; the text as printed, ‘Vehementer emungit qui sanguinem ejicit,’ would seem to be corrupt).

67 The terms argumenta and notabilia were used interchangeably for the same literary species (cf. Repert. 3, 233) as distinct from casus; the emendation proposed for Richard's text in Repert. 224 (‘argumenta decretalium,’ interpreted as a reference to his Casus Comp. I) cannot be defended.

68 See preceding note; MSS of the Casus are listed in Repert. 398. Abbé Fransen kindly informs us that the MS of Munich (MS lat. 16083, fol. 36rb-52va) has a contemporary rubric, ‘Casus mag(ist)ri Ricardi,’ and concludes with distichs in which the author admits his weakness for versification (cf. above, at n. 22ff.) : ‘Ad solitum suspiro metrum, ne deserat ortum/Ortolanus, equus prelia, mergus aquas/ ***’ etc.

69 Repert. 225.

70 Sum. quaest. tit.3 ‘Queri solet utrum summus pontifex utrumque gladium habeat, scil. materialem et spiritualem’ (M 196-197a, Z 147vb-148ra) has been discussed by Ullmann, , Med. Papalism 211ff. The answer is in the negative, even as in Richard's generale ‘arg. de iurisdictione distincta’ to 1 Comp. 4.18.7 (printed from the Apparatus of Tancred — who wrongly assigns it to Laurentius Hispanus — by Schulte, , SB Vienna 66 [1870] 85 and Gillmann, AKKR 105 [1925] 541 n.2; cf. ibid. 107 [1927] 647 n.2, also Ullmann, , op. cit. 145). Richard published this both in the Apparatus and the Brocarda.

71 Sum. quaest. 9.3 de lapsis; contra gl. to 1 Comp. 4.6.7, Sum. brev. and Dist. to D.50 (see below, Appendix E).

72 E.g. on the release from the oath of fealty, Sum. brev. C.15 q.6; contra gl. to 1 Comp. 5.6.7 (ibid.).

73 Gesta abbat. s. Alb. I, 307

74 Cf. n.42 above. When older bibliographers have Ricardus Anglicus teaching for some time at Oxford (references in Wahrmund's ed. of the Ordo, p.xv) this is part of the confusion with the career of St. Richard of Chichester (Acta Sanct. Apr. I, 286, cf. above, n.15).

Langton No. 37 (where Richard de Mores and Simon of Southwell, treasurer of Lichfield, are among the witnesses of an act of Hubert Walter), No. 54 (cf. Russell 113a n.2); one may note further Richard's law suit with Moses the Jew, Select Pleas from the Exchequer of the Jews A.D. 1220–1284 (ed. Rigg, J. M., Selden Soc. 15; London 1902) 4-5, and his activity as ‘magister et procurator’ of a certain Leodegarius Piparde, before 1219, Rotuli Hug. de Welles I, 109.

77 Ann. monast. HI, 44. Since he was back in England by 1217, he cannot be identified with Ricardus Anglicus, a regent master in theology at Paris in 1218, Chart. Univ. Par. I, 85.

78 Ann. monast. III, 158. This excludes identification with the ‘magister Ricardus anglicus’ entered under 15 September (no year) in Trombelli's obit list of S. Maria del Reno, Bologna (reprinted in Sarti, and Fattorini, , De claris archigymnasii Bononiensis professoribus [2nd ed. Bologna, 1888–96] II, 287).
