Alternative Names

Biography/Description

A student of Tancred and the civilian Hugolinus and later professor of canon law at Bologna. He devoted most of his time to re-editing the canonistic works of his older colleagues which had been rendered obsolete by the appearance of the Decretales Gregorii IX in 1234. Besides revising Brocarda, the Historiae of Damasus, the ordo iudiciarius of Tancred, and the Casus of Benencasa Senensis, he also updated Johannes Teutonicus’ Gloss to the Decretum (after 1234), adding his own comments. This text became the Glossa Ordinaria. Bartholomeus’ Quaestiones have likewise been shown to be updates of an older collection.
