Description
  • This manuscript contains two canon law texts and a tree diagram reflecting consanguinity rules. The first text is a collection concerning penance, which opens with De Penitentia Sive Medicus (About Penance or the Physician) by Burchard of Worms (d. 1025), followed by excerpts attributed to many other authorities. The other text is an abridged version of the Panormia , which, in turn, is an abbreviated and reworked version by an anonymous compiler of the Decretum (The Decretals) of Ivo of Chartres (d. 1115) (see Rolker, Canon Law (2010)). Contents: ff. 1r-72r: Burchard of Worms, Decretum Burchardi (The Decretals of Burchard), Book 19, De penitentia Sive Medicus or Corrector Burchardi , followed by excerpts from many different sources on penance from f. 36r onward, beginning ‘liber qui corrector vocatur et medicus qui correctiones corporum et animarum medicinas pleniter continet [...] Ex penitentiali Romano’. ff. 73r-112r: The Panormia (abridged version), beginning ‘Exceptiones ecclesiasticarum regularum’. f. 112v: A Tree of Consanguinity. Decoration:A diagram of the Tree of Consanguinity on f. 112v, decorated with foliate and architectural elements. Large initials in red and small initials in red or brown ink throughout the manuscript.
