This dictionary of identifications is a list of suggestions of possibilities to be used as a checklist. It was compiled as much for those just beginning the study of legal history as for specialists who may run across an unfamiliar citation outside of their periods of specializations. The scope of this work includes Roman law, medieval civil, canon, and customary law on the continent, and the common law of England up to 1607. It can only be a beginning, but as more information comes to hand a supplement or a second edition may be issued.
