Biography/Description

Born at Cremona, studied civil law at Padua and Bologna under Johannes de Anguissola and Guido de Suzzaria. Later on, he practised as a judge in various Italian communes. The same practical interests are reflected in his writing on criminal procedure, which also relates to canonical matters. He died around 1310.
