Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This book offers new perspectives on the legal and intellectual developments of the twelfth century. Gratian's collection of church law, the Decretum, was a key text in these developments and remained a fundamental work throughout and beyond the Middle Ages. Until now, the many mysteries surrounding the creation of the Decretum have remained unsolved. Professor Winroth has now discovered the original version of the Decretum in a version about half as long as the final text, and that invites a reconsideration of the resurgence of law in the twelfth century.

Synopsis:

An interpretation of Gratian??'s Decretum, based on the discovery of a shorter, original version.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 228-239) and indexes.
