Biography/Description

Bishop of Zamora, 1193–1217 (according to A. García y García). His performance as the chief administrator of the bishopric seems to have met with severe criticism, including that of Innocent III in a letter of 1198 (Register 1.58). But on the same occasion, Innocent praised him as an ‘expert in civil as well as in canon law’. Several of the glosses he wrote while teaching at Bologna have survived in the manuscripts, and some of his opinions are reported in the Glossa Palatina. Stephan Kuttner has also found glosses and notabilia signed by ‘mar.’ in a copy of Compilatio IV. If they were Martinus’, this would prolong his teaching career at least until 1216. Stephan Kuttner therefore has suggested his identity with Martinus Roderici, Martinus Arias’s successor at Zamora (1217–38).
