Biography/Description

A genre of legal texts. Those edited by Caprioli give a good sense of the range of them: (1) Dinus de Mugello (d. after 1298), Dini opusculum [De modo arguendi] (ed. Studi Senesi 75:40–54); (2) Rainerius de Forlivio (d. 1358), Raineri Summa super modo arguendi (ed. id.:111–185); (3) Opusculum De variis modos arguendi tam iuris canonici quam ciuilis secundum Iohannem Andree (d. 1348) et Iacobum de Arenis (d. c. 1296) (ed. id.:231–233); (4) Lecturae cuiusdam reliquiae Londinensis [De modis argumentandi] (probably from the school of Cinus de Pistoia, d. 1336) (ed. id.:235–249); (5) Iohannis Baptistae de Caccialupis (d. 1496) opusculum [De argumentandi doctrina] (ed. id. 77:40–54).
