Biography/Description

Born at Verona, c. 1420, Bartholomaeus began his juridical studies at Bologna under the civilians Floriano da San Pietro and Angelo Gambiglioni d’Arezzo, and the canonist Giovanni d’Anania. Therafter, he moved to Padua where he studied under Paolo da Castro, Francesco Capodilista and Iacopo Alvarotti. He obtained his doctorate at Padua in 1445 in utroque iure. Since then he lectured as a professor of civil law. In 1449–50, he taught at Ferrara, but he soon moved to his native city. In Verona he took an active role in civic affairs and practiced law. In 1458 he returned to teach in Padua, at first alternatively canon and civil law, then civil law only (since 1470). By 1459 he was named a consistorial advocate. Bartholomaeus was also an official representative of the Venetian governement to the Diet of Regensburg. He abandoned teaching in 1475 to be replaced by Antonio Francesco Dottori and died at Padua in the same year.
