CONTENTS Tome 2


Tome 2 of TUI 1584 is devoted to the interpretation of statutes. It bears the subtitle De statutis, consuetudinibus et privilegiis. (The middle term is abbreviated and could be consuetudine, but that seems unlikely.) Tome 2 contains fewer items than does tome 1 (14 as opposed to 32), and the layout it a bit more friendly to the eye. All of the items begin in the left column on the page, preceded by a heading that spreads across both columns, rather than, as in the case of tome 1, having headings tucked into the columns wherevever they might fit. The tome is approximately the same length as tome 1 (797 vs. 858 images), but unlike tome 1, all of the authors in tome 2 are Italian. All of the authors seem to be writing in the tradition of the mos italicus; there is relatively little that reflects French, or even Italian, humanism.

The tome begins with four items on statutes attributed to well-known commentators of the fourteenth century. The three items by the best-known, Baldus and Bartolus, are of highly doubtful attribution. The next treatise is of some interest, because it seems to be quite critical of Bartolus, though it has little to do with statutes. The fact that the next five items deal with statutes that, contrary to the ius commune, exclude women from inheritance when there are surviving men of the same degree of kinship suggests that such statutes were a matter of concern in the fifteenth and early sixteenth centuries. Also notable is the fact that concern with statutes easily blends into a concern with custom, with a treatise on a custom that similarly excludes women from inheritance and two treatises by canonists on the title on custom in the Gregorian decretals. The tome closes with a general treatise on statutes by a well-known commentator of the fifteenth century. Despite the subtitle, there is no treatise specifically devoted to privileges.

The list of titles and authors follows the format outlined in the introduction to these pages. There are no records in HOLLIS that are not found here, though there are some items that are not found in HOLLIS that are here. All of the authors in this tome were relatively easy to find in standard sources.

The heading abbreviations and the bibliographical abbreviations are the same as those used throughout these pages.

After the list of authors and titles there is another list that gives the formal ‘metadata’ of the tome. The register indicates, and this seems to be accurate, that the signatures are A-Z, Aa-Zz, Aaa-Ccc, all quaternions except Ccc, a quinternion. Unlike tome 1, the title page is fol. 1r. The front pastedown and a freestanding endpaper were added by the binder. The binder did the same at the end, though the final blank folio could have been used for an endpaper and the pastedown.

Preliminary work on this list was done in the summer of 2014 by Shuting Lu. The Ames Foundation is grateful to her for her devotion to the task. Errors, which certainly exist and which are my responsibility, can be called to our attention by sending us an email.

ITEM HOLAU TUIAU TUITI HN Citation Seq.
item no. 1Albericus de RosciateAlbericus a RosateCommentariorum de statutis libri IIII4192462t. 2, f. 2ra8  
noteAlberico da Rosciate (Albericus de Rosciate), b. Rosciate c. 1290, d. Bergamo 1360. This work is also known as Opus statutorum.    
item no. 2Ubaldi, Baldo degli, 1327-1400Baldus PerusinusTractus doctus iuxta, ac elegans, de statutis: alphabetico ordine congestus t. 2, f. 86ra176  
noteBaldo degli Ubaldi (Baldus de Ubaldis, Baldus Perusinus), b. Perugia 1327, d. Pavia 1400. Item not in HOLLIS; HOLAU is derived from other works by Baldus. TUI 1584 does not attribute this work directly to Baldus: authore D. Sigismundo eius pronepote. An older attempt to connect it to Baldus (C. Degli Azzi, ‘Il trattato “De Statutis”’, Opera di Baldo (Perugia 1901) 145-68) has not found favor in modern scholarship (Cortese, DBI, at 151a, ‘un’improbabile paternità di B.’). Since Sigismund is not himself known as a jurist, it remains possible that this collection of quaestiones was cobbled together, at greater or less remove, from geuninely Baldan material, which is very large indeed.    
item no. 3Ubaldi, Baldo degli, 1327-1400Baldus PerusinusRegulae generales statutorum t. 2, f. 155ra314  
noteBaldo degli Ubaldi (Baldus de Ubaldis, Baldus Perusinus), b. Perugia 1327, d. Pavia 1400. Item not in HOLLIS; HOLAU is derived from other works by Baldus. If we may doubt Baldan composition of the preceding item, it seems virtually certain that he did not compose this work in the form in which we have it. It seems to be a collection of regulae drawn from the preceding work.    
item no. 4Bartolo, of Sassoferrato, 1313-1357BartolusRegulae statutorum4192195t. 2, f. 158ra320  
noteBartolo da Sassoferrato (Bartolus de Saxoferrato ), 1313/14–1357. Current scholarship suggests that this work is not by Bartolus, though it may have been drawn from his works after his death. See Lange/Kriechbaum, Kommentatoren 729.    
item no. 5Bartolo, of Sassoferrato, 1313-1357BartolusContrarietates Bartoli t. 2, f. 163ra330  
noteBartolo da Sassoferrato (Bartolus de Saxoferrato ), 1313/14–1357. Item not in HOLLIS; HOLAU is derived from other works by Bartolus. Whoever wrote this work, it was certainly not Bartolus, who is consistently referred to in the third person. The work is probably to be identified with that of the same title by Matteo Mattesil(l)ani (b. ?Bologna . . . , fl. 1398-1412, d. Bologna . . .), a Bolognese professor of the early fifteenth century. See Lange/Kriechbaum, Kommentatoren 433.

noteCampeggi, Giovanni Zaccaria, b. Mantova 1448, d. Mantova 1511. As Pieri (DGI) points out, C. seems particularly averse to generalization; the work is ‘summarized’ in no less than 241 separate points.
