In the commentary preceding the facsimile the main issues are date and provenance of the marginal glosses and of some additional pieces at the beginning and the end (Glossa Coloniensis). The editors mainly follow Charles M. Radding and Antonio Ciarelli, seeking the origins in a centre of Lombard law (Pavia) about 1125. This opinion was strongly criticized by the late André Gouron, preferring (Northern) French, English or German origins about 1170. The author suggests Cologne as the place of origin, arguing from the existence there of schools of canon and civil law about 1165–1185 (recalled recently by Peter Landau). He further criticizes the commentary on the development of law studies in Cologne in the 14th and 15th centuries.
