Biography/Description

Johannes studied under Johannes Andreae, who became his stepfather. In 1326 he obtained the doctorate in canon law and began to teach in Bologna. He was a colleague of Jacobus Buttrigarius and Paulus de Liazariis. Among his students was Simon de Borsano. Johannes was married three times and had at least five children, including a son, Gaspare, who was also a significant canonist. Johannes actively took part in the civic life of Bologna and was very close to the ‘Signoria’ of Taddeo Pepoli, as many others civilists and canonists of this period were. He received many honors from the city, as well as popes and princes. In 1360 and 1362, he took part in two missions for the city of Bologna to the popes Innocent VI and Urban V. He died in 1365 of the plague. His legal writings, though lacking in the originality that distinguished the classical period of canon law scholarship, were acknowledged by his successors and had an important influence during the fourteenth and fifteenth centuries. An accurate list of Johannes works is yet to be determined: Calderinus was not an uncommon name and works of others bearing this name have yet to be disassociated from this canonist.
