Thomas Actius, Forosemproniensis

Tommaso Azzi



T.’s birth date comes from Italian edit16. We have been unable to verify it, but it is plausible. T.’s De ludo scacchorum in legali methodo tractatus (TUI 1584 t. 7) was first printed in Pesauro in 1583. 1603 saw the publication of his De infirmitate (Venezia, Giunta), which contains a dedicatory epistle to Ottavio cardinal Bandini, who was at the time papal legate in the Marche. The title page of that work describes him as ‘Forosempronienis iurisconsultus, eques, et comes aulae Lateranensis, et rotae Piceni [i.e., Ascoli Piceno] auditor’. To him is also attributed the authorship of Discorsi nuovi delle prerogative de curiali antichi et moderni Cortigiani, published in Venezia in 1600.
