Biography/Description

Guido was born c.1246–1256 in Baiso, near Modena. He studied canon law under Guido de Suzzara and Johannes de Agusellis at Reggio, where he received the doctorate in canon law. He then moved to Bologna and taught privately at first from 1283 until 1301, before he finally obtained a chair in canon law from the city. Besides, he received support and privileges from the papal curia and was involved in curial politics from 1295. In 1296 he was named Archdeacon of the Church of Bologna. In 1304, Guido was made a papal chaplain and auditor of the court of Audientia litterarum contradictarum, so that he moved to Avignon with the papal court in 1305. His most important student was Johannes Andreae, but he was famous in his own right as the author of the Rosarium, an enormous commentary on Gratian’s Decretum which he completed in 1300. Guido included a mass of material from earlier canonists such as Huguccio, Laurentius, and Vincentius which were not included in the Glossa ordinaria of Johannes Teutonicus as revised by Bartholomeus Brixiensis. He also composed an apparatus on the Liber Sextus. Guido died in 1313.
