Azo Lambertaccius



Alternative Names

Azo de Lambertazzi; Azo de Lambertaciis



The first news about Azo date back to 1258, when he was a consiliarius with dispensation. Since 1259, he appears as a doctor decretorum, then as a Bolognese professor and lawyer. A. was also a canon at Bologna. As a member of the Ghibelline party, he had to leave Bologna between 1274 and 1278, and was again penalized sometime later. He died probably in 1289. This Azo is different from the famous Roman jurist of the preceding generation.
