Franciscus, born at Padua around 1405, became a doctor utriusque iuris in 1429, and taught civil law at the University until 1462. Then he transferred to Ferrara to teach until 1466. A note from 1474 mentions him as dead. None of his works deals predominantly with canon law, nor do we have any precise notice about an assignment to lecture on canon law.
