Lyndwood's Provinciale "is a collection of the most important ecclesiastical legislation enacted within the province of Canterbury between the Council of Oxford in 1222 and Chichele's archiepiscopate (reign ended 1443). The completed Provinciale was accompanied by a comprehensive subject matter index and, more importantly by his own extensive marginal gloss. In the fashion of the European "ius commune" the gloss clarified the meaning of the constitutions, related them to the general law of the church, raised legal points of doubt and controversy, and commented upon their observance in the English spiritual courts" ODNB. The text was edited by Josse Badius and the index was compiled by him. William Lyndwood (c. 1375-1446) was bishop of St. Davids in 1442. He finished writing his Provinciale in 1433 and it was first printed in Oxford by Thomas Rood in 1483. STC 17111; Adams, Books Printed in Europe 1501-1600, L2117.
