Biography/Description

There are few certain details regarding the life of Angelus de Castro, the eldest son of the more famous jurist Paulus de Castro. He was born during the the first decades of the fiftennth century, though the exact date is unknown. The earliest record of Angelus is the document describing his degree as doctor utriusque iuris, which he received 7 May, 1436 from the University of Padua. Later that year we find Angelus lecturing on Roman law in Bologna. In 1439 he returned to Padua to lecture on canon law. He remained mostly in Padua for the rest of life, save some excursions to Rome, where he served as a consistorial advocate, and Bologna, where he briefly lectured on Roman law again. In addition to his teaching activity, Angelus wrote consilia. Possible dates for his death vary widely, from 1477 at the earliest to 1492 at the latest.
