<div type="canon">

Individual canons are encoded using the <div type="canon"> tag, and its children. For example, this canon is from the Dacheriana:

  • <div type="canon" n="22" xml:id="D.44v.3">
    • <div type="number">
      • <p>CAPUT XXII</p>
    • </div>
    • <div type="rubric">
      • <p>Ut poenitentes ab aliis Episcopis vel Presbyteris non recipiantur, nec alibi communicent, nisi in ipsis locis ubi fuerunt exclusi.</p>
    • </div>
    • <div type="msSource">
      • <p>Ex Epistola Papae Felicis ad Episcopos per Siciliam.</p>
    • </div>
    • <div type="scholSource" key="sourceNumber"></div>
    • <div type="canonText">
      • <p>Curandum vero maxime, et omni cautela est providendum, ne quis fratrum coepiscoporumque nostrorum, aut etiam presbyterorum in alterius civitate vel dioecesi poenitentem, vel sub manu positum sacerdotis, aut eum qui reconciliatum se dixerit, sine episcopi vel presbyteri testimonio et litteris ad cujus pertinet parochiam, suscipiat; quod si aliqua dissimulatione negligitur, culpa tangit etiam clerum, qui in locis in quibus hoc minus curatum fuerit, commoratur. His itaque rite dispositis, et ad Ecclesiarum vestrarum notitiam nostra deliberatione perlatis, parere vos convenit. De his similiter et in Concilio Arelatense, cap. xvi.</p>
    • </div>
  • </div>

The <div type="canon"> tag requires two attributes:

@n: This attribute notes the number of the canon within its context, whether that context is a collection, book, or part.

@xml:id: This attribute provides a unique identifier for this canon within the entire CCL corpus. The xml:id is built by combining the manuscript's siglum with the folio on which the canon starts, and the number of the canon on that folio. These three elements are separated by periods. In this example, the canon is the third canon located (or starting) on folio 44v of manuscript D:

  • <div type="canon" n="1" xml:id="D.44v.3">
