Abstract:The treatise on procedure Ulpianus de edendo was written between 1168 and 1185. Its author was a Scottish churchman who also made the formulary, given by the ms. London, Brit. Libr., Harley 2355, for a lawyer in a case of a pars ecclesiae. The work borrows from Placentinus' Summa Codicis, but not by purely mechanical ways. Its style is clear, always logical, and often axiomatic, far from Bolognese traditions. The glosses, as furnished by several manuscripts, support the hypothesis of influences of the Ulpianus among English writings, maybe from the Lincoln school.
