Clement V
Leaf from the Constitutiones Clementinae.
(Mainz: Peter Schoeffer, 1471). Single leaf. Pope Clement V, most notable for his suppression of the Knights Templar and moving the seat of the Papacy from Rome to Avignon, wrote this text as a supplement to the 1140 Decretum of Gratian. These, along with a series of other additions by various popes, established canonical law for the Church and its followers, encompassing the legalities of marriage, heresy, ordinations, sacraments, and ecclesiastical property. The present leaf and its surrounding commentary deal with this last subject. It discusses monetary gifts to and from various establishments, including hospitals and inns. The leaf is printed on vellum in black ink, with manuscript marking in red and blue, plus five initials. Generally soiled at margins and single tear to inner edge, else an appealing leaf from a significant incunabulum. (BSB-Ink G-254, GW 7080).
