Biography/Description

Most of our information about J. comes from Italian edit16 and has not been confirmed, but it seems plausible. Of his education, we have not been able to find anything, but he seems to have taught canon law at the Sapienza in Roma. He served as a papal nuncio. By 1510 he was an auditor of the Rota. E. Cerchiari, Capellani papae et apostolicae sedis auditores causarum sacri palatii apostolici seu sacra Romana Rota ab origine ad diem usque 20 septembris 1870. 2: Syntaxis Capellanorum auditorum (Roma 1920) 84. By the time that he was sworn in the Rota in 1512, he was also the bishop of Sebenico (Šibenik, Croatia). He seems to have held both positions until died in Roma in 1528, probably on the occasion of the sack of the city. For his De gratiis expectativis (TUI 1584 t. 15.1), see the discussion under Gómez. If anyone has any idea what S’s surname might have been in Croatian, please get in contact with us.
