Biography/Description

Nothing of this Anglo-Norman canonist is known other than that he wrote a work called the Lucubratiuncule on the Decretum of Gratian. This work was heavily influenced by Simon of Bisignano’s Summa (1177–79). This decretist is to be distinguished from the magister of the same name.
