Abstract

This third session in honour of the eminent historian of medieval canon law, Dr Linda Fowler-Magerl, addresses the treatment of specific issues of legal practice within 11th- and early 12th-century canonical collections and their sources, and the role of judges, focusing on the issue of homicide, the development of ordines iudiciorum, and the collection of Deusdedit. Collectively the papers shed light on how canonical compilers both evaluated and used canonical sources.
