An ‘Ocean of Law’. The Harvard Law School’s copy of TUI1584 is bound in 29 physical volumes, 17 inches high, 18 ‘tomes’ in 25 physical volumes and 4 physical volumes of indices.


The following table lists all of the authors named in the first eight tomes of TUI 1584. It will be expanded as the lists of of authors and titles grows. The names are asigned a unique number that will eventually proceed alphabetically according to the lemma, but it should not be used until the list is complete. Most of the authors are given a brief biography, but in some cases in tomes 5 through 8, we simply gave a reference to where a biography could be found. We spent more time on those authors who are not well known or who have been misidentified in the past.

TUI 1584 gives the authors’ names in Latin. Starting at some uncertain date around 1200 or a bit later, library catalogues tend to give them in the vernacular; modern biographical dictionaries do so too, particularly when they are national biographies. We rather suspect that some of our authors’ mothers would be quite surprised at the vernacular names that have been assigned to their sons, particularly when there is no contemporary evidence to support the assignment. The damage is, however, done. Normally, if one wants to find a TUI 1584 author in modern scholarship, one needs the vernacular name. With this in mind, we have listed our authors from 1200 on under their vernacular names, unless the author is normally listed under his Latin name or unless we could not find him. Similarly, library cataloguers tend to list our authors alphabetically under the second element of the name, imagining it to be a surname, even though it frequently is not. Since it takes some doing to get from the Latin name in TUI to the vernacular surname, we have given cross-references from all the Latin names in TUI 1584 to the name where the main entry is found. These cross-references begin with the author’s Christian name, e.g., Achilles Personalis Mirandulanus, not Personalis, Achilles, Mirandulus. In a few cases we have also given the inverted version of the name as well, e.g., Aegidius, Jacobus, where we are aware that library catalogues list him that way. Christian names of authors given in TUI 1584 are somewhat normalized; for example, all authors with the Christian name ‘John’ are listed under ‘Joannes’, ignoring the spelling variations that are found in TUI 1584.

Most library catalogues make an exception for authors who are known only by their Christian name and what is obviously a toponym. DGI and DBI follow this practice as well, and so have we. Hence, Antonius de Butrio will be found under Antonio da Budrio, and not Budrio, Antonio da.

There is considerable variation in library catalogues in the listing of surnames that have a prefix (de, le, von, etc.). Our listings invert these prefixes. Hence, Nicolaus de Lescut will be found under Escut, Nicolas de l’, not l’Escut (or Lescut), Nicolas de.

The dating of the authors is complicated. Ideally, each author should be accompanied by the place and date of his birth and the place and date of his death, e.g. b. Milano 1492, d. Pavia 1550. We do not have, and will probably never have, that information for all of them. Probably the most common uncertainty is the date of birth, e.g., b. Rosciate c. 1290, d. Bergamo 1360, where ‘c.’ before the date stands for circa. Similarly, when it precedes a date, ‘a.’ stands for ante and ‘p.’ for post. Where the place of birth or death is known, but the date is not, the position for the date is supplied by an ellipsis, e.g., b. Cingoli ... , fl. 1568 – d. 1596. Where the date of birth or death is known, but not the place, it is omitted as in the previous example. Where the date of birth is not known, the first year in which the author appears is preceded by ‘fl.’ for floruit, once more as in the previous example.

Two dates separated by a dash without anything more, e.g., 1313/14–1357, are taken, by and large, from library catalogues. They indicate birth and death dates without regard to whether the place of either is known. The back slash (/) indicates ‘or’.

Where precise dates are unknown, we have attempted to place our authors in a century, e.g. 16th c., where ‘c.’ here stands for ‘century’. Where some, but not much, precision is possible, ‘16/1 c.’, ‘16/m c.’, and ‘16/2 c.’, stand for the first half, middle, and second half of the century respectively, and ‘sec. 16 ineunte’ stands for ‘the beginning’ of the named century.

The search for the authors was not particularly systematic. We pursued them pretty much in this order, in DGI, DBI, Lange and Lange/Kriechbaum (in the case of the latter two, only where the dates were early enough to make the pursuit worthwhile), DHGF, NDB, ADB, and MEMJ. As a general matter, if we found them there, we did pursue them any further. Failing these, we went to the CERL Thesaurus. The Thesaurus is a work in progress. Since it is derived from library catalogues, it is no better than is the information in those catalogues, and some of it is quite obviously wrong. The entries, however, almost always provide useful clues. From the Thesaurus, we pursued sources online until we reached an identification that we thought was reliable or, in a couple of cases, until we reached the point where it seemed clear that the author was obscure indeed.

The following abbreviations are used: ADB = Allgemeine Deutsche Biographie, 56 vols. (1875–1912; reprint Berlin 1967–1971) (we used the online edition, accessed through the Biographie-Portal, and hence do not include the page numbers unless we found the reference elswhere); DBI = Dizionario Biografico degli Italiani, 79 vols. to date (1960- ) (we used the online edition and hence do not include the page numbers unless we found the reference elswhere); DHJF = Dictionnaire historique des juristes français: XIIe-XXe siècle, Patrick Arabeyre, Jean-Louis Halpérin, and Jacques Krynen, 2d ed. (Paris 2015); DGI = Dizionario Biografico dei Giuristi Italiani (XII – XX Secolo), Italo Birocchi et al., ed., 2 vols. (Bologna 2013); Jöcher = Christian Gottlieb Jöcher, Allgemeines Gelehrten-Lexicon, 4 vols. (Leipzig, 1750–1751); Lange, Glossatoren = Hermann Lange, Römisches Recht im Mittelalter: 1 Die Glossatoren (München 1997); Lange/Kriechbaum, Kommentatoren = Hermann Lange and Maximiliane Kriechbaum, Römisches Recht im Mittelalter: 2 Die Kommentatoren (München 2007); MEMJ = Medieval and Early Modern Jurists online (this is Kenneth Pennington’s online BioBibiliographical Guide to Medieval Canonists with some additions of civilians and sixteenth-century jurists and considerable updating); NDB = Neue Deutsche Biographie, 25 vols. to date (Berlin 1953– ) (we used the online edition, accessed through the Biographie-Portal, and hence do not include the page numbers unless we found the reference elswhere); Schulte = Johann Friedrich von Schulte, Die Geschichte der Quellen und Literatur des canonischen Rechts von Gratian bis auf die Gegenwart, 3 vols. (Stuttgart 1875–80); s.n. = sub nomine (used when the cited source does not list the author in the way that we have).

Errors, which certainly exist, are my responsibility; they can be called to our attention by sending us an email.

The following table lists the authors in tomes 1–8 in alphabetical order. Where the main entry for the author is given in a different form the entry the entry provides a cross-reference to the main enty. The main entries are accompanied by notes about the author and a list of items in TUI attributed to him. These items are linked to our summary of the contents of each tome. To proceed directly to the PDS of the tome, use Tractatus Universi Iuris (Venice 1584–86), Manifest of Digitized Volumes.

note(1) De cessionibus (t. 3.2). The ed. Köln 1591 seems to be slightly better printed, but has no further clues as to the author. (2) De diversis contractibus usurarum (t. 7, f. 50rb). The work also appears in Tractatus 1549, t. 5. A work of the same title appears in a manuscript dated to 1476 in a private collection (now probably in Leiden) (NRHD, 16 (1892) 361) and in another manuscript of approximately the same vintage sold at Christie’s in 2003.

noteNot in DGI or DBI. A’s birth date comes from Italian edit16. We have been unable to verify it, but it is plausible. A’s De ludo scacchorum in legali methodo tractatus (t. 7) was first printed in Pesauro in 1583. 1603 saw the publication of his De infirmitate (Venezia, Giunta), which contains a dedicatory epistle to Ottavio cardinal Bandini, who was at the time papal legate in the Marche. The title page of that work describes him as ‘Forosempronienis iurisconsultus, eques, et comes aulae Lateranensis, et rotae Piceni [i.e., Ascoli Piceno] auditor’. To him is also attributed the authorship of Discorsi nuovi delle prerogative de curiali antichi et moderni Cortigiani, published in Venezia in 1600.

noteCERL Thesaurus gives the birth date but no death date and adds that Baeza operated, at least in part, in Granada. His surname is a toponym in Andalusia (prov. Jaén). A stub in Spanish Wikipedia says that he died in 1569. Normally that would be hard to believe, but that he died before he was thirty is confirmed by Jöcher (1750) 1.707, who adds that B’s works were published posthumously by his brother Melchior.

noteM. Bégou-Davia, in DHJF 104–106; K. Pennington, in MEMJ. B. was bishop of Autun and later a cardinal at Avignon. The toponym Viennensis that appears in his Latin name in TUI 1584 is probably the result of a confusion of B. with the Pierre Bertrand who was archbishop of Vienne from 1352–62. As a jurist, B. is best known for his defense of the ecclesiastical position at the assembly of Vincennes of 1329. His other canonistic works remain in manuscript.

noteE. Fabbricatore, in DGI 1.271. B. received his first law degree in 1568. He was a practicing lawyer and writer with a decidedly humanist bent. As might be expected of a practicing lawyer, his method paid more attention to the role and decisions of the courts than did that of his more academic contemporaries. During the pontificate of Gregory XIII, Boccacci was forced to leave Rome. In the early 1580s he was a member of the college of advocates in Macerata, and he probably taught there. He returned to Rome when Sixtus V became pope in 1585 and died there in 1596.

He apparently did not have to work for a living for a living and, it would seem, he did not. He wrote poetry and treatises on law, the most fanciful of the latter being the one De equo sive caballo (t. 6.1). His most serious treatise, according to Volante, Quaestiones criminales does not appear in TUI 1584.

He went on to become a famous teacher of civil law at Pavia. He engaged in many diplomatic missions, but his only known writing is the De testamentis, which, if we are to believe the title, was a disputatio that took place in the last year of his life.

The attribution that is sometimes made of the De usuris to Willem de Bondt, the Dutch jurist of the early 17th century is impossible; he was born in 1588. C’s mother was the daughter of Willem de Bont, the chancellor of the duchy of Brabant. C joined his maternal grandfather’s name to his father’s and eventually came to use it exclusively. C. was active in the affairs the university at Leuven from 1427, though he seems to have taken both his arts and law degrees at Paris. From 1438 he was professor of canon law at Leuven, a position that he held until his death. The De usuris is a quodlibet that he gave at Leuven in 1450, first published in ?Paris (s.d.), whence it appeared in Tractatus 1549 and in TUI 1584.

noteJ. van Rompaye, in Nationaal Biografisch Woordenboek. D.’s given name was spelled in many different ways; modern biographers seem to have settled on ‘Joos’. D. studied law at Leuven and Orléans, emerging with a licentiate in both laws. He practiced law in Brugge, and held various magistracies, ultimately becoming a member of the council of finance of the Hapsburg Netherlands, a position that he held from 1552–1575. He is best known for his Praxis rerum criminalium , a work that was translated into Dutch, French, and German and was influential in developing European criminal practice. He also wrote a complementary Praxis rerum civlium. Modern scholarship has not been kind to D. He claimed a doctorate in law that he never seems to have earned, and both Praxis works turn out to have been largely plagiarized from unpublished works by one Filips Wielant. The Patrocinium pupillorum, minorum et prodigum (t. 6.1) and the Subhastationum compendiosa exegesis (t. 8.2), however, do seem to be genuine works of his.

Both the French and the Spanish claim E. There seems little doubt that the toponym that modern cataloguers use as his surname is Ejea de los Caballeros (prov. Zargosa, ESP). The issue is whether the university at which he taught, at least later in his life (he seems to begun at Montpellier), is Valence (dep. Drôme, FRA) or Valencia (prov. Valencia, ESP). The former seems more likely. One of his works (De pactis) is dedicated to Guillaume Poyet chancellor of France (1538–1545), another (De aerario) to the king of France himself (Francis I), and the biography, found in Justin Brun-Durand, Dictionnaire biographique et biblio-iconographique de la Drôme (Grenoble: Libr. Dauphinoise, 1900), 1.303–304, has a plausibility that the Spanish ones (e.g., Francisco de P.

GW attributes the work to Franciscus de Accoltis (Francesco Accolti detto l’Aretino), but it is hard to see how Accoltis got garbled as Acceptantibus, and Terra Cinguli is not one the many places where Accolti is known to have operated. That there was a doctor utriusque in Arezzo named Franciscus Joannes de Acceptantibus, who died c. 1374, is confirmed by S.

One of them became premier president of the parlement of Paris in 1572, but it is not sure which, because the death dates of both of them are confused. For our purposes Arabeyre has established that the three treatises attributed to ‘Antonius Fumeus’ in TUI 1584 are the work of the uncle.

Francesco Calasso, writing about Bartolus de Saxoferrato in DBI (6 [1964]), says that an ordo iudiciarius, sometimes attributed to Bartolus, is also sometimes attributed to one Iacopo Gentili da Perugia. A website that purports to list all the professors who ever taught civil law at Perugia lists a Lorenzo di Iacopo Gentili as having taught there from 1415–?, and 1429–?. G. could be Lorenzo’s father, or it could be Lorenzo himself, whose Christian got forgotten and his patronimic remembered. More work on this author is clearly called for.

noteNot in DHJF (Gillet, Jean, at 480 is almost certainly not the same man). CERL Thesaurus is not much help. The date that it gives, 1538– , is simply the date of the first edtion of G.’s De iurisdicione et imperio (t. 3.1). A man of this name was a theologian and philologian in the 16th century, the editor of a number of large editions of works of the church fathers. We hesitate to identify G. with the philologian, and the Thesaurus may be indicating the same thing by having a separate entry that, so far, lists only the philologian’s edition of St Basil. A clue to an identification may lie in the toponym in G.’s Latin name, Briennensis, which may be Brienne-le-Chateau, dép. Aube.

He led a peripatetic life. We find him in Modena, Venezia, Treviso, Padova, Bologna, Napoli, Reggio Emilia, and, once more, Bologna, where he seems to have taught from 1281 to his death in 1293. His teaching seems to have been entirely in civil law, but some of his works branch out into consideration of statutes.

The opera omnia of a Spanish canonist and moralist of that name were published in 7 volumes in Venice in 1609. He is probably the same man who is identified in what is described as the second edition of his consilia in 1595 as of Ciudad Real. The toponym Placentini indicates that he came from Plasencia (prov. Cáceres). A brief biography of a man of that name is found in the Jöcher (1750) 2.1285–6. The biographical and bibliographical details match, but the only date offered is “lebte zu Ende des 16Seculi.” Considering how common the name is, it is possible that there was more than one Spanish legal writer of this name in this period.

112Joannes Rogeraius Trochaeus Parisiensis, ?16th c. 
noteNot in DHJF. CERL Thesaurus has two entries for what seems to be the same man: s.n. Trochaeus, Joannes R. with a reference to his De officio iudicis (t. 3.1) and s.n. Trochaeus, Joannes Rogeraius. The surname Troche exists, though it is not common. There is a very rare Italian surname Trocheo, but everything that we know about T. suggests that he was French. The De officio iudicis was first printed in Lyon in 1550 and is dedicated at Lyon to one Joannes Papponius, who is described as iudex silvaticae provinciae. This is probably Jean Papon, 1507–1590, who was lieutenant-general of the bailliage of Forez from 1545 to 1585 (see L. Pfister, in DHGF 782–783). The De officio iudicis has a decidedly humanist bent, and it is possible that Trochaeus is some kind of humanist in-joke based on the Latin metrical foot trochee. It is also possible that it refers to the some obscure place-name. The voivodeship of Trakai, for example, in the Grand Duchy of Lithuania is Tracensis in Latin. If either of these suggestions is plausible, then we should be looking for someone named Jean Rogeray. (The plausibility of this suggestion is somewhat increased by the fact that T. refers to himself as ‘Rogeraius’ in the dedicatory epistle.) There is, for example, a Jean de la Rogeraye, a proctor in the parlement, who is listed as owning the Paraphrases of Erasmus on 26 June 1539.

He was involved to some extent in the affairs of his home town, Lodi, but moved on to teach first at Pavia and then at Siena. His production of juristic writing is substantial, particularly considering that he died at a fairly young age.

noteNot in DHJF. CERL Thesaurus. The information given in library catalogues and the ed. Venezia 1576 suggests Dôle as the place of origin for M., in which case ‘Bolani’ in TUI 1584 is a misprint for ‘Dolani’. His De restitutione in integrum (t. 5), his only known work, was first published in Lyon in 1538. The only edition online (Venezia 1576) describes him as formerly a counselor of the Holy Roman Emperor, his ‘magister libellorum’, and his ambassador to the king of France, none of which we need to believe, but none of which we have any reason to doubt.

So far as we are aware, nothing has been added to M.’s biography since the Nouvelle biographie generale t. 34 (Paris 1861) col. 431–432: ‘On ne connait ni sa vie ni le nom de son pays natal’. That he had some sort of legal training seems obvious from his De iure liberorum (t. 8.2), which enjoyed some printing success. He is best known as a philologian, whose notes on Tacitus and on Varro are still occasionally used. The dedicatory epistle of the first edtion of the De iure liberorum (Lyon 1558) is written by one ‘P. Bugnonius Maticensis J.C.’ to one ‘Ianus Angelus Papius’ who is described as of Napoli and ‘I. C. professor apud Cavares Primarium’. We have not pursued any of these references; they might provide further clues.

His last legal position was as auditor of the rota at Macerata. His writings are extensive and wide-ranging. In addition to the specifically legal treatises that appear in TUI 1584, he wrote on theological and moral issues, treatises on applying Aristotelean categories to legal terminology, and a treatise on what we would call political science called De legibus et statutis.

134Montanus, Maturinus, fl. 1549–1555 
noteNot in DHJF. CERL Thesaurus. Two works are recorded under this author in WorldCat: the De haeredibus ab intestato (t. 8.1) and a work entitled Genialium dierum commentarii in nobile ac praeclarum Julii Pauli responsum septimo mense ff. de statu hominum. The first seems to have its editio princeps in Lyon in 1549. It is dedicated by the author to one ‘Gulielmus Comes praeses curiae Burdigalensis’. A Guillaume Le Comte de La Tresne is recorded as the fifth president of the parlement of Bordeaux on 27 August 1543. See the Liste de membres du parlement de Bordeaux published by the Archives departementales de la Gironde. The title identifies the author as being of Périgeux. The second was published in Paris in 1555. It contains a dedicatory epistle to a friend given at Périgeux, s.d. Both works have a decidedly humanist bent. Our author is probably the same as Mathurin Montaigne, who is described as both a physician and a jurist in A. Dujarric-Descombes, ‘Le docteur Jean Pascal’, Bulletin de la Société historique et archéologique du Périgord 34 (1906) 367.

A well-known French jurist, who wrote on both the customary law and on the ius commune and whose writings negotiate between the methods of the humanists and those of the Bartolists. His religious affiliations were complicated. His De eo quod interest was published in Italy under name of Gaspare Cavallini (1530-1589), q.v., in order to avoid the censors.

139Muscornus, Hieronymus, Cyprius, 16th c. 
noteCERL Thesaurus lists M. in three entries, the first gives dates of 1581–1596, but these are publication dates, not the dates of M.’s life. The second and third add nothing to what we already know. The sole work ascribed to him is De iurisdictione et imperio (t. 3.2). Assuming that the name is not a pseudonym, the only hope of finding him lies in the toponym. There were relatively few jurists whose works were being published in western Europe in the 16th century who came from Cyprus. The dedicatory epistle of ed. Passau 1570 is addressed to one Jacobus de Nores count of Tripoli. This is probably Giacomo de Nores, count of Tripoli, who was killed by the Turks in the battle of Nicosia in 1570. That gives a terminus ante quem. The third volume of Anton Francesco Doni’s letters is dedicated to the same man in 1546, when he was not yet count. C. Schiavon, ‘Una via d’accesso agli epistolari. Le dediche dei libri di lettere d’autore nel Cinquecento. Prima parte’, Margini 3 (2009) online. That gives a terminus post quem. More work is called for.

N. was an auditor of the Roman Rota and engaged in various diplomatic missions for the pope. In addition to the two Tractatus ab intestato (t. 8.1), he is mentioned as the author of decisions of the Rota. Vermiglioli also mentions manuscript consilia that were in his time at Lucca.

He ended his life as professor of theology at the university of Wien and died on a visitation to the Domincan convent in Nürnberg.

noteK. Luig, in NDB. O. studied at Rostock, Köln, and Bologna, but he took his doctorate at Greifswald. He was an early convert to Lutheranism and as a result taught in a number of different places, ultimately settling in Marburg. He worked on developing a genuinely Protestant law and distanced himself from those parts of the ius commune that were specifically Catholic, among them marriage law and the law of the relationship between church and state. He wrote widely, however, and a number of his works appear in Tractatus 1549. Their absence in TUI 1584 is noticeable as is the fact that his De executoribus (t. 8.1) is attributed simply to ‘Joannes iureconsultus clarissimus’. The work was printed in Köln in 1541, at 90–118 together with his Collatio iuris ciuilis et canonci. The Protestant tilt of the latter is fairly obvious, that of the former is not. We have not seen what seems to be the first edition, Frankfurt 1520, which is held only by the university library at Rostock, but if the date is to be believed it was written before O. became seriously involved with Protestantism.

His death date is frequently given as 1487, but according to Chabrand and Giordanengo, this is ten years too late. P. was a doctor of law and wrote some academic legal works. He was, however, a practicing judge for most of his life, and a man of affairs, not all of them savory.

Both describe him as an advocate of Rome. In the preface to former, ‘Ad lectorem’, P. says that he became interested in the question because he was consulted about it by a client. The 1579 edition of the latter is not available online. It is, however a more substantial work, which continued to be printed into the 18th century.

The Thesaurus says that he was a professor of law at Torino, and adds the toponyms ‘Bargeius’, ‘Bargianus’, ‘de Balgis’. The first two suggest Barzanò (prov. Lecco), which would fit geographically with Torino. That he was a professor at Torino we cannot confirm; he does not seem to be mentioned in T.

172Rojas, Juan de, d. 1578 
noteCERL Thesaurus. R. should not be confused with Juan de Rojas Sarmiento, a well-known Spanish astronomer, who was his close contemporary. R. was bishop of Girgenti (Agrigento) in Sicily from 1577 to 1578. Eubel, 3.98 (online by subscription). His death date now seems to have been established as 1578. Three of his works, including the Epitome omnium successionum (t. 8.1), were published by his brother in Salamanca in 1581. The book identifies R. as a member of the college of St. James (called ‘of Cuenca’ after its founder, the bishop of Cuenca) in Salamanca. That he was, as the authority file of the Deutsche Nationalbibliothek says, an inquisitor before he was bishop of Agrigento, is certainly possible. His other two works deal with the topic of heresy.

173Rolandino Passeggeri, b. Bologna c. 1215, d. Bologna 1300 
noteI. Birochi, in DGI 2.1717–1720. R. studied law but never became a doctor. Rather, he became a notary, but he was also a teacher of notaries. He was deeply involved in the conflicted politics of Bologna in the second half of the thirteenth, where became a leader of the notaries. His writings, as one might expect from a notary, were practical, but not without an underlying theoretical content. His best-known work is his Summa artis notarie, but his Flos testamentorum, extracts from which appear in t. 8.1, was also well known.

When he was not made a cardinal, he went back into academe, and taught canon law for 28 years at the university of Padova. He wrote on both canon and civil law but is best known for his Monarchia in which he asserted the rights of the emperor against those of the pope.

R. was lieutenant-general of Beaumont-le-Vicomte and Fressnay in the county of Maine, sat on the council of Charles d’Albret and of Marguerite de Valois, and was an advocate in, and counselor of the exchequer at, Alençon (dép.

R. is mentioned in Girolamo Tiraboschi’s Storia della letteratura italiana (Venezia 1795–6) 7.4.1482. Tiraboschi thinks of R. as a philologian (grammatico). He says that R. came from Cologna Veneta (prov. Verona), and attributes to him, in addition to the Vitae (t. 1), a Decuria of remarks on various Latin authors and notes on the letters of Cicero.

Afterwards he served as commercial agent for the king of Portugal, Manuel I (1495–1521), in Firenze, Pisa, and Livorno. The Tractatus de assecurationibus (t. 6.2) was first published in Venezia in 1552, but Domenico Maffei has argued that its composition goes back to 1488. D.

182Selve, Jean de (the ?elder), d. 1521 
noteP. Arabeyre, in DHGF 923–924. Arabeyre has shown that the author of the works attributed to ‘Joannes de Selva Galli’ in TUI 1584 are not by the well-known Jean de Selve (1475–1529), a scion of a noble family from the Bas Limousin, who entered royal service as a lawyer at an early age, became a confidant of, and a diplomat for, François I, and ended his life as premier président of the parlement of Paris (1520–1529). They are, rather, by his (probably) elder brother, a doctor of both laws, who became a counsellor in the parlement of Paris in 1511 and died in 1521. Before learning this, we wondered in our note to De iureiurado (t.4), how the better-known Jean de Selve could possibly have found the time to write the treatise. The answer is that he did not. The article in French Wikipedia, evinces some confusion between the two by not recognizing the existence of the elder, but adds plausibility to proposition that there were two Jeans by noting that the better-known Jean was his father’s eighth child, the first of a second marriage.

noteNot in DGI or DBI. CERL Thesaurus. We have been unable to confirm S.’s death date, which appears in Italian edit16. It is, however, possible, since the first edition of his De decretis (Perugia 1574), which seems to be his only published work, was written, as he says in the dedicatory epistle to one ‘Petrus Ursinus’ (doubtless a member of the well-known noble family of the Orsini), while he was still a student at the university of Perugia. In that epistle S. describes himself as coming from Gagli (in the Marche).

188Textor, Oliverius, fl. 1529 
noteNot in DHJF. CERL Thesaurus. The earliest printing that we have found of T.’s De successionibus (t. 8.1) is in a large collection of treatises on the topic published in Köln in 1569. This is probably not the first printing. There are more records of his commentary on JI.3.6: Oliuerij Textoris Turonensis & Ligoliani In celeberrimum Institutionum Imperialium titul. De gradibus cognationum, commentarius elegans iuxtà ac doctus : ab eodem in Valentina Delphinatus Academia editus anno à Christi natiuitate vicesimonono supra milesimum [sic]: omneis [sic] omnium cognationum & affinitatis arborum declarationes, & vtilitates inde nascentes complectens (Lyon: heirs of Iacobus Gunta, 1554). Despite the errors in the Latin, there is no particular reason to doubt that this identifies a jurist who came from Ligueil (dép Indre-et-Loire) in the county of Tours, who first published this work in the Academy of the Dauphiné in Valence (dép Drôme) in 1529. Though the work uses JI.3.6 as a springboard, it is very much a canonistic work. That T. was also a canon of Gap (dép Hautes-Alpes), as is stated in the Thesaurus, we have not been able to confirm, but have no reason to doubt.

Malagola, ‘Documenti inediti sulla laurea e sull’insegnamento di Gregorio XIII (Ugo Boncampagni)’, Il Buonrrotti ser. 2 12 (gennaio 1877-1878) 14–15. The De annua praestatione (t. 6.2), which seems to be his only published work was first printed at Bologna in 1544.

He wrote an apparatus on the Code, the Digestum vetus, and the Libri feudorum, repetitiones and quaestiones.

Later he pronounced judgment that the marriage of Henry VIII and Catherine of Aragon was valid. C. not only wrote large works, he also wrote a large number of treatises on various theological and moral matters among which are those De cambiis and De monte pietatis (t. 6.1).

The only other information that we have about him is that he is described as ‘licentiatus in utroque’, that he wrote a repetitio on D.25.2.15, and that a repetitio of his on a decretal appeared in a collection of ten repetitiones on the decretals published in Paris in 1514. The De collationibus enjoyed considerable publishing success, but the author himself disappears from view. He may have died young.

In 1505, he became professor of law at the university of Freiburg, where his teaching in the humanist style was an instant success. In doing this he anticipated Alciati; his contemporary Budé also took a humanist approach to law but did not attempt to teach prospective lawyers. Z. was deeply involved in the reform of the city laws of Freiburg in 1520. He corresponded with Luther, but remained a Catholic. Most of his legal works were published posthumously by his son and his students, but an edition of the De substitutionibus (t. 8.2) was published in Freiburg in 1532.
