To the common elements of the collections canons of local councils, canons of the Greek councils, decretals, from the 5th c. the Gallo-Roman churches added two particular collections that circulated widely all through the early Middle Ages: the so-called collection of the II Council of Arles, a private collection composed between 442 and 506; and particularly the Statuta ecclesiae antiqua, thought to have been compiled by the priest Gennadius of Marseille ca. 475485. With the passing of time, this code was considered to be that of the IV Council of Carthage of 398.

From the 6th to the 9th c. the Gallican churches composed their canonical collections as best they could, bearing in mind the political events that continually built up and destroyed kingdoms Franks, Burgundians, Visigoths. In this way many canonical collections appeared, more or less closely resembling each other, whose provenance and area of application are very difficult to ascertain. Among the best known are the collections of Corbie, Cologne, Toulouse-Albi, Lorsch, Lyons, Reims, Pithou, St. Maur, St. Amand and Burgundy Maassen, 556-642. The most widespread was the Vetus Gallica, once called the Angers canonical collection, a small systematic collection of 400 canons distributed under some 60 titles. Its latest editor claims to distinguish three stages of elaboration: Lyons, ca. 600; Autun, ca. 675; Corbie, early 8th c. Mordek 95ff.
