Hic liber decretorum Iuonis apud nos pluribus locis reperitur; qui, quoniam ipse quoque non parue quantitatis non est facile portabilis, Hugo Cathalaniensis ex eodem uolumine abbreuiato libellum portabilem legitur composuisse, qui et ipse apud nos est et summa decretorum Iuonis appellatur. ’ 27 Canon Law and the Letters of Ivo of Chartres of Ivo. Further, the monk Gratian, as it is said, compiled the book of decrees which now is generally in use; however, at which time he did this, I do not know, except that I think he did so after Ivo.
A prominent example is Haimo of Bazoches (d. 1153), who relates having reworked Ivo’s Panormia when in fact he abbreviated the 10P; see Kéry, Canonical collections, 264. On the collection, see Fowler-Magerl, Clavis canonum, 209–14. As will be discussed in Chapter 7, notes 145–7, I disagree with Linda Fowler-Magerl on the dating and authorship of the collection. 129 J. , the Decretum] l’emporta sur toutes les precedentes; et les docteurs l’expliquoient dans les escoles avant celle de Gratian’. In his Praenotionum canonicarum libri quinque (Paris, 1687), 480–3, he argues against Trithemius too, assuming that Trithemius confused Panormia and Decretum.
According to him, the two collections had little in common save for 136 the Prologus, which he believed not to belong to the Panormia either. It was therefore the text of the Decretum rather than the Panormia that he 137 studied in search of a better Gratian. Thus, although there was some doubt concerning the account of the Speculum historiale, this did not directly lead to the attribution of authorship of the Panormia to Ivo. The theories of Vosmedian, Molinaeus and Agustín, different as they were, did not gain much ground during the sixteenth century.
