Biography/Description

A well-known French humanist jurist who also tried to negotiate between Catholics and Protestants during the French religious wars. He lead a peripatectic life, teaching privately and publicly in numerous places, none of them for very long. As a jurist, he is said to have invented the method of palingensia, reconstructing older works from the surviving fragments in the Corpus Iuris.
