Jurisprudence of the Apostolic Signatura in contentious-administrative cases

A list of the decisions of the Apostolic Signatura which have been published in several periodicals, has been created by Mons. G. Paolo Montini. The most recent version of this list is accessible on his web site. The following table is mainly based, with his permission, on that list. Some information from other sources has been added. The table on this page contains 400 decisions, of which 124 are definitive sentences.
