Report No. r403

Laurentius Pudericus

?15th c.


Alternative Names

Lorenzo Puderico; Laurentius Pudericus Neapolitanus



A cleric of Napoli, Laurentius wrote a Breviarium decreti. Schulte gives no references but gives the incipit as ‘Sicut fulgur auri superat fulgorem omnium metallorum’. A manuscript with that incipit and this title is found in Erlangen, Universitätsbibl. 594. See the elaborate description in H. Fischer, Die lateinischen Papierhandschriften der Universitätsbibliothek Erlangen (Erlangen 1936) 278–279, who gives the author’s name as Laurentius Ulderici. The manuscript dates from the 15th century, and that is the source of our tentative date. The work, however, may be considerably older. What relationship it bears to the Breviarium decretorum with the same incipit that Schulte ascribes to Johannes Calderinus (2.250) merits further study.
