S. earned a doctorate utroque from Pisa in 1568. He was a secular priest and served as vicar general of various well-placed cardinals who became diocesan bishops. His last legal position was as auditor of the rota at Macerata. His writings are extensive and wide-ranging. In addition to the specifically legal treatises that appear in TUI 1584, he wrote on theological and moral issues, treatises on applying Aristotelean categories to legal terminology, and a treatise on what we would call political science called De legibus et statutis.
