These efforts reached fruition in 1151 with the completion of Gratian's Concordia Discordantium Canonum, or Decretum Gratiani, a watershed compilation that superseded earlier collections. The Liber Quinque Decretalium of Gregory IX followed in 1234. Published in 1298, the Liber Sextus Decretalium of Boniface VIII was the last great collection of the pre-Reformation era. John XXII added the final official collection, the Liber Septimus Decretalium, better known as the Constitutiones Clementis V, or Clementinae (1317). Three more texts were added later: the Extravagantes of John XXII (1325), the Extravagantes Communes of other popes to 1484 and the Appendix Pauli Lancellotti (1563). These texts, popularly known as the Corpus Juris Canonici, were revised in 1580-1582 to reflect changes ordered by the Council of Trent. In this form it remained in force until the enactment of.
