Biography/Description

From Florence, Lapus studied philosophy and law at Bologna under Johannes Calderinus, Lapus Abbas, and Johannes de Lignano. He received doctorate around 1353. Thereafter he was in Florence, first as a private teacher of canon law and then as a professor (1367–78). He also held various positions in the Florentine government until he fell into political disgrace. Banned from his native city, he obtained a professorship in canon law at Padua (1379). He died in Rome two years later.
