Biography/Description

Born at Noto (Sicily) around 1450, Antonius joined the clerical ranks and studied at Bologna under Andrea Barbazza, his ‘fellow Sicilian’. He received a doctorate in both laws in 1479 and lectured on canon law until 1487, when he transferred to Padua. There he produced most of his writings, which abound in scholarly annotations considered too bulky and old fashioned by some of his contemporaries. Pope Alexander VI nevertheless made him judge of the Roman Rota(1500). A year later, the Spanish king elevated him to the bishopric of Malta, but he never took possession of it. He died c. 1503.
