Chapter Summary

Frankish conciliar attendees not only consulted canonical collections as part of their protocol, they also had every reason to assume that their own decisions would eventually appear in similar compilations. They were conscious, in other words, that they were contributing to the ever-growing, albeit amorphous, body of Western canon law. But the canon law of the Early Middle Ages was not the canon law of Gratian and his successors. Although some Frankish canons eventually would be absorbed into the medieval Corpus Iuris Canonici, their survival necessitated tearing them away from the original contexts of their enactment, even in cases where their language remained intact.

Keywords: canon law; Frankish church councils
