Alternative Names

Bartolomeo Taegio



B. is listed in Italian edit16 as a man of letters and a jurist, who founded the Accademia dei Pastori di Agogna at Novara, where he was called ‘Vitauro’. He is said to have been the vicar general of Milano and governor of the ‘Riviera all’isola d’Orta’. He is best known today for his dialogue La Villa (1st ed., Milano 1559). His Tractatus varii (1st ed., Milano 1564) is described at some length in M. Pifferi ‘Criminalistica in antico regime’ (2012) as moving away from the focus on procedure or on specific crimes to an attempt to generalize about the nature of criminality. An extensive biography of B. may be found in T. Beck’s edition and translation of La Villa, but he says little of T’s Tractatus varii, his only known legal work.
