Born in Bologna c. 1450, Hippolytus studied law there before moving on to Padova and then Ferrara, where he was a favorte pupil of Felinus Sandeus. He became a doctor utriusque iuris in 1480, and taught Roman law from 1482, teaching such jurists as Antonius de Burgo and Paulus de Oria. From 1492 to1497, Hippolytus took a hiatus from teaching and served in a number of civic offices in the Duchy of Milan. In 1497 he returned to teaching, and spent the years 1516–1520 in particular lecturing on canon law. He was so renowned as a teacher that, even in his later years when barred by illness from teaching, Bologna still paid him a stipend in order to attract students. Hippolytus died in Bologna in 1529.
