In the years since Anders Winroth identified two recensions of the Decretum of Gratian, scholars have reshaped our interpretations of the collection. This session draws on these discoveries to ask questions of new research on what remains the most important legal collection of the central Middle Ages. Combining insights into the division and structure of the collection itself, as well as the investigations into theoretical and intellectual ideas that emerged from it, this session will demonstrate the continued role that the Decretum has to play in our understanding of 12th-century canon law history.
