Title : Johannes Faventinus on Marriage (with an Appendix Revisiting the Question of the Dating of Alexander III's Marriage Decretals) [Two ideas of marriage coexisted in the 12th century. The canonist Gratian favored consummation as the decisive element in matrimony. Peter Lombard, a theologian, emphasized consent. The canonist Johannes Faventinus, whose teachings may have helped mold the influential decrees of Pope Alexander III, accepted Peter Lombard's distinction of a promise to wed and words of consent in the present tense. Consummation was equated in Faventinus' opinion with consent in the present tense. Title note supplied by Feminae.]
