Marvin describes it as "...deservedly popular, both on account of the learning, solidity, and accuracy of his research, and because it is the best book in the language showing the connexion between the Common and the Civil Law... It is often cited, and always with respect." Marvin, Legal Bibliography 155. Browne was Regius Professor of Civil and Canon Laws at the University of Dublin. See Cohen, BEAL 5382.
