Although incomplete (for instance, vols. 40-49 were never published), the volumes of this official Synod compilation still serve as the opisi for the Synod archives in RGIA. They include much more than most opisi, however: generally detailed descriptions are provided for each document, often with extracts of text and interesting graphical materials. In many cases the entries here substitute effectively for the document itself.
