Biography/Description

Jurist from Catalonia, from the city of Lérida, who studied in Bologna, probably under Johannes Bassianus. Took his oath to the city of Bologna as doctor legum in 1213. As was typical, the oath included swearing to teach only in Bologna, to support studies in Bologna, and to advise the city’s leaders. Nothing more is known of his life. His work, though not voluminous, was of high quality, although it was quickly overshadowed by the procedural work of Roffredus.
