Biography/Description

S. pursued his studies in law at Toulouse, where he obtained a doctorate utriusque in 1544. He did not receive a chair, however, until 1557. He plunged himself into the life of university, was saved from prison 1575 on suspicion of Protestant leanings by the intervention of the king, but retired from the university. His early works are strongly influenced by the humanists. He wrote imaginary dialogues between jurists of antiquity and contemporary jurists. His more mundane legal works, such as his De mora (TUI 1584 t. 6.2), were not published until after his death.
