Abstract

Manuscripts and their contents are key to the history of medieval canon law. Investigations of their contents continue to produce new and innovative ideas about the history and development of ecclesiastical law throughout the Middle Ages. This session delves into contemporary canonical collections and treatises and their contents, using their manuscripts to deepen and nuance our understanding of law at the time, and focussing on the locations and spaces where it was compiled, created, and conceived.
