Biography/Description

Born probably c. 1360 as a Bolognese citizen, Antonius studied canon law in Bologna under Petrus de Ancarano. He received a doctorate in civil law in 1384, and one in canon law in 1387. Celebrated primarily as a teacher of law, his juristic writings received a mixed and often negative treatment from later jurists. From 1387 until his death in 1408, Antonius migrated frequently to teaching positions in Bologna, Perugia, Florence and Ferrara. In 1406/07 Antonius took part in a papal mission to the antipope Benedict XIII in an attempt to resolve the schism through the uia cessionis. His most important students were Johannes de Imola and Dominicus de Sancto Geminiano.
