1952. xxxiv, 272 pp. ISBN 978-0-88844-403-5

This is the first print edition of a twelfth-century canonical work that has come down to the present in a single manuscript. The Summa Parisiensis treats all of the first part of the Decretum, and the second part with the exception of causae 27, 28 and 29. It is a useful aid for the study of medieval canon law. The editor describes the manuscript, discusses the problems in regard to dating, and concludes that it is of the thirteenth century, perhaps the first half. The date of the work itself is likewise discussed, and is placed by the editor at around 1160. The introduction also gives the available information on the author and the sources used.
