Biography/Description

Antonius was born in Noto (Sicily) c. 1450. He attended the school in his native city and became a monk at an early age. Later, he studied under Andreas Barbatius at Bologna, where he obtained his doctorate in utroque iure in 1479. Before his doctorate he was already holding lectures, and in 1479 he became professor of canon law in Bologna and held this position until 1487. Then he went to Padua to teach canon law until 1500. A.’s most famous student was Diplovatatius. At the request of Pope Alexander VI, he became a judge of the Roman Rota, in 1500, and remained in Rome until his death in 1503, although he was named bishop of Malta by the King Ferdinand the Catholic.
