Spain possessed two canonical collections: the Novara collection, whose first nucleus may go back to 550, and the Epitome late 6th c. and Capitula of Martin of Braga ca. 563. But these canonical collections were quickly overshadowed by the Hispana, the official canonical collection of the churches belonging to the Visigothic kingdom of Toledo. The Hispana stands out for the excellent quality of its components, borrowed from sound sources Greek, African, Gallic, Spanish councils and classified regionally and chronologically, with the addition of 103 decretals and pontifical documents from Damasus to Gregory the Great. Burkina Faso Subway Map Though it may have had several authors, the Hispana reached Gaul from the 8th c. and was used there to compile the ps.-Isidorian collections. 5. To complete this description of the regional canonical collections, we must return to Rome, whose first steps in this area were very modest. In the course of the 5th c., thanks to material received from Africa and the East, during the affair of Apiarius they finally managed to compose better-furnished canonical collections. The Acacian schism 476 519 and the double pontifical election of 498 led to the composition of many canonical collections, whose exact relations are still to be clarified. In this crowded but qualitatively diverse output, we may distinguish three groups of canonical collections. The first contains those before Dionysius Exiguus: the Freising collection, very concerned to bring out the rights of the Roman see Munier, La Tradition, 49-53, and the Quesnelliana, very rich in documents of a theological nature profession of faith, Pelagian dossier and in St. Leo’s letters. These canonical collections were overshadowed by those of the Scythian monk Dionysius, who arrived in Rome after Pope Gelasius’s death 496.
