Magister Honorius was an important Anglo-Norman canonist of the twelfth century. He probably spent the years 1185–1195 in Paris studying and perhaps teaching law, although he did witness a charter in England in 1192. He wrote the SummaDe iure canonico tractaturus’ in Paris around 1188 and the Summa quaestionum soon thereafter. In his Summa De iure canonico tractaturus’ Honorius recounts a story about a Hungarian archbishop, who received an important privilege from the Roman pontiff in favour of his diocese. Nevertheless, he did not hesitate to throw it into the fire, because a fee of three solidi was paid for it. This article aims to investigate whether the sources of this historical recount originate from the medieval Kingdom of Hungary.
