Geminianus Inghiramus



Alternative Names

Gimignano Inghirami



Born at Prato in 1370, Geminianus studied law at Bologna under Gasparus Calderinus, Antonius de Butrio and Petrus de Ancharano, to receive the doctorate in 1398. From 1399, he served in the ecclesiastical administration, first as a vicar of the bishop of Pistoia, then soon at the papal curia. He acted as a papal representative in important political missions. Besides his own legal repertory and a collection of court decisions, he left, at his death in 1460, a whole library of books on canon law.
