Alternative Names

Lodovico Carerio



Biographical details about C. are sparse. He is recorded as holding various offices in Reggio Calabria and seems to have been a practicing lawyer throughout his life. He is best known for his Practica causarum criminalium (Napoli 1546), which enjoyed considerable publishing success. That work seems to have begun life as a repetitio on C.7.65.2, but ultimately devolved into three separate treatises: De appellatione, De indiciis et tortura, and De homicidiis. Later he wrote a treatise De haereticis (TUI 1584, t. 11.2), which is sometimes awkwardly combined with the Practica. His works are principally works of the ius commune, but they contain occasional references to the statutes of the Regno.
