Compendium iuris canonici; [manuscript].

Title:
Compendium iuris canonici [manuscript].
Abstract:
An alphabetical collection of terms for the consultation of legal texts and commentaries, also known as Repertorium iuris canonici. The last three leaves contain de Braco's poem Repudium ambitionis contra miseros cardinalium servitores. The poem is an address in verse to Ambition, whom de Braco supplies with a large variety of negative qualities. Within this diatribe, de Braco focuses the brunt of his attack upon the Papal court, especially the cardinals, who in the poem use ambition to control de Braco and his colleagues. Throughout the poem, de Braco makes frequent use of quotes from the 12th-century lawyer Gratian. The poem culminates with de Braco divorcing Ambition through the legal codes of the canon law, the Old Testament, the New Testament, and Roman civil law.
