A Dominican, Guillelmus was the confessor of King Philip of France from 1305 and the chief investigator in Philip’s campaign against the French Templars from 1307 onwards. At an earlier stage of his career, Guillelmus had studied at Paris, probably theology. A repertory of the Decretum and Liber extra, called the Tabula iuris (before 1298), originates from that period. Guillelmus died around 1314.
