Chapter Summary

This chapter provides biographical details of the author Vincentius. Vincentius was a Christian priest who worked in al-Andalus under a number of powerful ecclesiastical patrons. As a canonist, he was a member of the Mozarabic intellectual elite. The few details known about his life come from the work he compiled for a certain bishop, ʿAbd al-Malik. According to this, he travelled around several dioceses translating, copying and collating books of canons, under the authority of various bishops. He was in charge of a team of jurists, scribes and translators who worked over the codex of canon law for more than three years in the mid-11th century.
