- These cuttings are taken from a copy of the Decretals of Pope Gregory IX (ca.1145-1241). Decretals are collections of papal statements regarding canon law, or the ecclesiastical law of the Catholic Church. In 1230, Pope Gregory commissioned the Dominican friar Raymond of Pennafort to compile a new collection that would gather together and streamline earlier decretals. Gregory's Decretals supplanted the earlier ones and became the basis for all subsequent canon law.
