Codex, Nürnberg 1488, fol. 347r
|Who was the first to
translate and adapt Novellae for the Codex margins?
Irnerius? Huguccio is earliest witness for Irnerius' authorship
Manuscripts contain 220 vulgate authenticae and over 148 extravangantes (Palmieri* did not find all of them in his six manuscripts)
Many of the the extravagantes have little or no connection with any Novellae. Authenticae that became part of the vulgate tradition often had tenuous relationships to the Novellae to which they were attributed.
