Biography/Description

Probably studied canon law in French schools and in Bologna before 1170. His identity with a Bolognese glossator of the 1180s identified with a ‘d.’ is uncertain. Weigand believes he was definitely the author of three glosses on CC.29-30 in a Cambridge Decretum Gratiani manuscript.
