Report No. t262

Claudius Cotereus



Alternative Names

Claude Cotereau (Cottereau)



The authority file of Bibliothèque nationale gives the birth and death dates with some confidence. The NBG t. 12 offers no dates, but tells us that he was born in Tours, studied at Poitiers, practiced law for while, and then became an ecclesiastic. He seems to have ended his ecclesiastical career as a canon of Notre-Dame de Paris. He had a command of Latin and Greek, and knew some Hebrew. His main works are the Tractatus de iure et privilegiis militum (TUI 1584 t. 16), the De officio imperatoris, first published together in Lyon in 1539, and a translation into French of Columella’s De re rustica (Paris 1552 and 1555).
