Biography/Description

Alexander studied in Bologna under Johannes de Imola, Johannes de Anania, Angelus Aretinus and Paulus de Castro; there he obtained his doctorate in civil law in 1445. He began his activity as a professor of law around 1450, and taught, perhaps, in Pavia (1449–50) and certainly in Ferrara (1457–58, 1460–61), Padua (maybe in 1459 and, without any doubt, 1467–1470) and Bologna (1461–67 and 1470–77). As his literary production indicates, his interests were chiefly in matters of civil law, although Alexander also wrote a few comments on the Liber Extra. He died in Bologna in 1477. Among his students were Jason de Maino, Bartholomeus Socinus, Bologninus, and Lancellottus Decius.
