Biography/Description

F. was a well-known canonist who participated in the commission that produced the Roman edition of the Liber extra. He was also an inquisitor and wrote quite extensively on inquisitorial practice, frequently by way of notes to existing treatises. An example of such work is the Tractatus seu forma procedendi contra de haeresi inquisitos (TUI 1584, t. 11.2). Pending a fuller biography, a sense for the man and his work can be found in English Wikipedia.
