Petrus Hispanus Portugalensis

fl. 1220s–1230s

 

Alternative Names

 

Biography/Description

Taught in Bologna during the 1220s before he moved to the University of Padua (c.1229). He composed a collection of notabilia on Compilatio quarta and is probably identical with another Petrus Hispanus who wrote a procedural treatise entitled Ad summariam notitiam. That he was also the author of the Ordo Quia utilissimum previdi fore (1216/34) is less likely, since it cites civilian sources extensively.
