Biography/Description

Advocate at the Roman curia during the pontificate of Innocent IV (1243–54). Judge and professor of canon law in Arezzo. His writing on the advocacy deals with the practical, procedural concerns of his profession. It was an important source of the ordines of Egidius de Fuscarariis and Guilelmus Durantis. Bonaguida’s Consuetudines offer a unique source for the administrative routines of the papal curia and the chancery in the thirteenth century.
