Abstract

This first session in honour of the eminent historian of medieval canon law, Dr Linda Fowler-Magerl, focuses on canonical texts and their transmission in the earlier medieval period, exploring Carolingian and Visigothic sources and their use and development through the expanded version of the Hispana Augustodunensis, the issue of penance in early medieval canon law, and the use of Hispanic conciliar canons. Collectively, the papers shed light on how canonical compilers both evaluated and used canon law texts.
