Bartholomew of Brescia

BARTHOLOMEW OF BRESCIA: A canonist of the thirteenth century. Little is known with any certainty of his life. He was born about the beginning of the century at Brescia, studied Roman and canon law in Bologna under Laurentius Hispanus, and afterward taught canon law there. He is principally remembered for his commentary on the Decretum Gratiani (about 1240), but he wrote several other works on canon law, which are usually not much more than revised editions of earlier works.

E. Friedberg.
