A significant number of Pope Alexander III’s decretal letters were incorporated into the "Liber Extra" becoming part of a cohesive juridical work that would remain as the principal source of Canon Law well into the Twentieth Century. If his direct association with the School of Bologna and Master Gratian is disputed (Noonan, 1977), the presence of juridical elements in his writings is undeniable. In face of the discussions surrounding Alexander III’s background, the present text analyzes the use of juridical formulas and terms in some of the pope’s decretals as well as his references to works of canon law, particularly to Gratian’s Decretum.
