Matricula a list or register of the church, called in Greek κανών and κατάλογος ἱερατικός; in Latin, album, matricula, tabula clericorum. The use of the word matricula to designate entry at college or university record of a new student is due to this early adaptation of the word. Because the names of all the clergy and other persons were enrolled in the matricula, they were called canonici. — Farrar, Eccles. Dict. s.v.; Eadie, Eccles. ict. s.v. SEE CANONICI; SEE DIPTYCHS.
