In Bernard's action can be recognized, indeed, the different stages of a very traditional ecclesiastical procedure, which would come to be known under Innocent III as the denuntiatio evangelica, but to which contemporaries of the Council refer as the correptio or correctio fraterna.
If nevertheless they remain unsuccessful, the actor ecclesiasticus has to proceed to the final step in the evangelical precept, that is the Dic Ecclesiae, which consists once more of two elements: the publica correptio and the publica denuntiatio.
After these comparisons with other and similar ecclesiastical assemblies, with the prescriptions given in Ivo's Panormia and with the ecclesiastical custom of the denuntiatio evangelica, the conclusion must be that the Council of Sens was perfectly canonical and that no irregularities occurred, with the possible exception of Abelard's appeal.
Thus, dismissing Abelard's provocation, Suger put the juridical procedure into motion, which necessarily followed Bernard's denuntiatio evangelica.
For the denuntiatio evangelica, see Lefebvre, "Contribution a l'etude des origines et du developpement de la 'denunciatio evangelica' en droit canonique," Ephemerides Iuris canonici 6 (1960): 60-93, and Piero Bellini, "Denunciatio evangelica e denunciatio judicalis procata (con particolare riferimento alla transgressio promissionis)," Ephemerides Iuris Canonici 18 (1962): 152-210 and 20 (1964): 39-109.
A similar equation of denuntiatio and accusatio takes place in the Summa "Quoniam status ecclesiarum" (1160-71); see Lefebvre "Contribution a l'etude," 65-66.
For the improper use by Abelard of the juridical term accusatio instead of denuntiatio, see above.
