Vitalis Nemausensis

c. early 16th c.


Alternative Names



‘Nemausensis’ is a Latin name for Nîmes, and when we combine that fact with the fact that what appears to be the first edition of the De collationibus (TUI 1584 t. 8.1), Lyon 1510 (WorldCat), describes him as ‘consiliarius christianissimi francorum regis’, it seems likely that we are looking for a southern French jurist whose floruit should be placed at the beginning of the sixteenth century, rather than at the end where the authority file of the Deutsche Nationalbibliothek has it. The only other information that we have about him is that he is described as ‘licentiatus in utroque’, that he wrote a repetitio on D.25.2.15, and that a repetitio of his on a decretal appeared in a collection of ten repetitiones on the decretals published in Paris in 1514. The De collationibus enjoyed considerable publishing success, but the author himself disappears from view. He may have died young.
