The volume in two tomes contains texts which define the creation of an independent Church during the Middle Ages. In it are the decrees of two Councils of Constantinople (869-870 and 879-880) and the general Councils of the medieval west starting from the First Lateran Council (1123) to the Fifth Lateran Council (1517), including the Councils of Pisa (1409), Pavia-Siena (1423) and Basel after the transferral to Ferrara

"In short, university and seminary libraries may do well to purchase this new edition." (Norman Tanner, in: Gregorianum, Vol. 95 (2014), Fasc. IV, p. 874-875)

"Dieses ist eine höchst nützliche Ausgabe, sie stellt Texte von grundlegender Bedeutung nicht nur für die Entwicklung der Doktrin, sondern ganz allgemein für die Kirchengeschichte zusammen." (Dieter Girgensohn, in: Quellen und Forschungen aus italienischen Archiven und Bibliotheken 95, 2015, p. 493-494

“This three-volume work in four parts has now come to an end, but it is not the end of the project as a whole. Indeed, there seems to be no limit to the enthusiasm of the editor-in-chief who in volume II announces similar volumes with the decrees of the councils and synods of the Orthodox and Eastern Churches, this too a most needed project in its own right.” (J. Verheyden, in Ephemerides Theologicae Lovanienses, 92/4, 2016, p. 733)
