Biography/Description

Taught canon law, probably at Bologna, in the second half of the 13th century. He was author of glosses on all parts of the Decretum, most of which were included by Guido de Baysio in his Rosarium of 1300. His decretalist glosses were also often cited in the work. His name was often abbreviated in manuscripts and printed editions as io. de f., io. de fan., io. de fiton., io. de fi., etc., suggesting that a spelling with ‘f’ was at least as common as one with ‘ph’.
