Ludovicus Charondas

1534 X 1536–1613


Alternative Names

Louis le Charondas; Louis le Caron



L. was a well-known French humanist jurist and politique who wrote extensively on both Roman and French customary law. He lacks a full-scale modern biography. A brief English-language account, placing him in his time, can be found in N. L. Roelker, One King, One Faith (Berkeley 1996) 32–3. The Godefroy edition of the Corpus Iuris Civilis has many notes and comments by him.

Source: Y. Le Gall, in DHJF 625–628, s.n. Le Caron, Louis (auto-surnommé Charondas par allusion à Charondas de Catane).
