Early conciliar decrees were read in Ireland and in Irish centres on the Continent. The compilers of the Collectio canonum Hibernensis (or Hibernensis) had access to both the Gallic and Spanish traditions of the Statuta ecclesiae antiqua (a small book of ordination rites and clerical discipline). The B recension of the Hibernensis is less accurate in quoting the Statuta text than is the A recension. A distinct Breton family of Hibernensis manuscripts emerges again from details of the Statuta quotations. The quotations are important evidence for ordination rites in the early Irish church. The Cologne manuscript of the Hibernensis uses far more Gallic canons than do the other manuscripts of the Hibernensis.

Past scholars have taught us much about the date, form and authorship of the Collectio canonum hibernensis (CCH), but little about the compilers’ use of their sources. They used at least six Isidorian texts. Various manuscript traditions of Isidore’s writings were drawn on in Ireland and at Insular centres on the Continent. Use of Isidorian texts is more evident in manuscripts of the B recension than of the A recension of the CCH. The more accurate quotation of Isidorian texts in Breton manuscripts shows that there existed a distinct Breton textual tradition among the CCH manuscripts.
