Compiled by Raymond of Penaforte at the request of Pope Gregory IX in 1230-1234 and promulgated in 1234, it is one of the four works known collectively as the Corpus Juris Canonici, a collection of papal decisions concerning ecclesiastical hierarchy, procedure, the functions and duties of clerks, marriage, and crime. Our 1624 Lyon edition incorporates the changes ordered in 1580-1582 by the council of revisers established by the Council of Trent (the Correctores Romani). It also includes Bolognini's edition of the Margarita Decreti, an index to the Decretals. This edition not in Ferreira-Ibarra. This copy is from the library of the eminent historian Brian Tierney [1922-2019], an expert on the relationship between church and state in medieval Europe.
