The document was compiled by Æthelwold, who was aided by monks from Fleury and Ghent. A synodal council was summoned to construct a common rule of life to be observed by all monasteries.

It did specify a procedure for the election of bishops that differed from Continental practice, and which led to a predominantly monastic episcopacy.
