Extravagants Constitutio’ns,
or Extrav’agants. The papal constitutions of John XXII., and some few of his successors, supplemental to the “Corpus Juris Canon’ici.” So called because they were not ranged in order with the other papal constitutions, but were left “outwanderers” from the general code.   1
