  • Title: Fra "Canones" e "Leges": "Magister Vacarius" e il Matrimonio [The relative importance of consent and consummation in validating marriage was disputed by canonists and theologians. Vacarius, an Italian jurist who worked in England, attempted to resolve this question by finding a "Third Way." Vacarius believed the couple's giving of themselves to each other established a marriage. Vacarius was not just a theorist, but a practicing jurist who served as a judge in a case of bigamy in the Archdiocese of York. Title note supplied by Feminae.].
