Sigla and Abbreviations

Manuscript sigla accord as far as possible with those popularized by previous editions and textual studies. Abbreviations for councils, decretals and penitentials are (with some exceptions) those developed for the Carolingian canon law project. Abbreviations for Latin paracanonical and literary works are, for the time being, entirely idiosyncratic. Abbreviations for Old English paracanonical and literary works are (with some exceptions) essentially those developed for The Dictionary of Old English.

Reg.eccl.Cart.exc. Registri ecclesiae Carthaginensis excerpta, annis 397–418, in Munier, Africae, pp. 182–247. This collection of 100 African canons (excerpted from a now lost Registrum ecclesiae Carthaginensis) was first used in Coll.Dion.II, where they are numbered 34–133 following CCAR.419, and go under the rubric 'Recitata sunt etiam in ista synodo diuersa concilia uniuersae prouinciae Africae transactis temporibus Aurelii Carthaginensis episcopi celebrata'; on this (probably spurious) rubric, as well as the Reg.eccl.Cart.exc. in general, see F.L. Cross, 'History and fiction in the African canons', The journal of theological studies 12 (1961), 227–47, at 233–39. In Coll.Dion.-Hadr. these canons are separate from CCAR.419 and titled 'Incipiunt canones conciliorum diversorum Africanae provinciae numero CV' (the number 105 is arrived at by the inclusion of an additional 5 chapters of material from CCAR.419). The first 22 canons of Reg.eccl.Cart.exc. (cc. 34–56) are excerpted from CCAR.397; cc. 57–65 from Carthage (16 June, 401) (the canons of this council transmitted only indirectly); cc. 66–85 from Carthage (13 Sept., 401) (transmitted indirectly); cc. 86–90 from Carthage (27 Aug., 402) (transmitted indirectly); cc. 91–2 from Carthage (25 Aug., 403), c. 93 from Carthage (16 June, 404), and c. 94 from Carthage (23 Aug., 405) (all transmitted indirectly); cc. 95–106 from Carthage (13 June, 407) (transmitted indirectly); c. 107 from Carthage (15 June, 409) (transmitted indirectly); cc. 108–27 from CCAR.418; cc. 128–33 from Carthage (30 May, 419, in causa Apiarii), second session. Note: the following conclusio and subscriptions in Coll.Dion.II are in fact those for CCAR.419, first session (25 May); Munier therefore prints these subscriptions on pp. 153–55
