Biography/Description

Italian edit16, in addition to giving C’s birthplace (Perugia) and death date, reports that he taught at Perugia and Bologna. We have not yet been able to confirm the teaching at Bologna or the death date, but have no reason to doubt them. In 1532, C. published in Perugia a volume of annotationes on the Institutes (online). That work rather strongly suggests that he was teaching civil law in Perugia at the time. In 1540, he published in Roma his Tractatus de imperatore, designed to support Charles V (online). It was reprinted in TUI 1584 (t. 16), and not, so far as we can tell, thereafter, but it attracted the attention of John Selden and of a number of modern writers on the political theory of the time. Modern writers, and even some librarians, have a tendency to use the Latin form of C’s name.
