This book offers a study and register of the French canon law collection known as the Collectio Burdegalensis. Considerable attention is devoted to the compiler's use and organisation of legal sources, and a rich historical background of church reform in late eleventh-century Aquitaine is provided. By examining when, where, by whom, and how this collection was made, the study re-evaluates its place and value among other legal collections of the period.
