Franciscus de Acceptantibus

d. c. 1374


Alternative Names



What seems to be F.’s sole work is also in Tractatus 1549. There is an incunabulum (GW 145) with the explicit: ‘Explicit tractatus que sit interlocutoria et que difinitiua. Editus a domino Francisco de Acceptantibus de Aretrio iuris utriusque doctore excellentissimo, tunc Presidente in Terra Cinguli Marchie Anco’, followed by a few additiones. GW attributes the work to Franciscus de Accoltis (Francesco Accolti detto l’Aretino), but it is hard to see how Accoltis got garbled as Acceptantibus, and Terra Cinguli is not one the many places where Accolti is known to have operated. That there was a doctor utriusque in Arezzo named Franciscus Joannes de Acceptantibus, who died c. 1374, is confirmed by S. Cohn, The Cult of Rembrance and the Black Death: Six Renaissance Cities in Central Italy (Baltimore 1997) 260, who describes the images that he ordered at the time of the plague for one church, and that were planned for his tomb in another church, in Arezzo.
