Bermondus Choveronius

mid-15th c.


Alternative Names

Bermond Choveron



One hesitates to put ‘Bermondus Choveronius’ into any vernacular. The Christian name is rare; the surname so rare as to be almost non-existent. ‘Chover’ is a Portugese verb meaining ‘to rain’. Be that as it may be, C. is described in the first edition (Lyon 1550) of his De publicis concubinariis (t. 11.1) as a doctor of both laws and a canon of Viviers (dép Ardèche). The work itself, the only work that we have found ascribed to him, is a commentary on the decree of 5 Lateran (1514) on the same topic.
