Drawing on his commentaries and other archival sources, this study investigates the teaching and law careers of Raffaele Fulgosia (Fulgosius), a Padua university jurist who was an advocate of the Council of Constance in early 15th-century Italy. The opening chapters offer a historical overview of the Council of Constance, with details on manuscript sources and dating as well as details on FulgosioAEs life, education, career, and marriage. The rest of the book focuses on his teaching style, his professional work, his activities at the Council of Constance, and his opinions on various political, philosophical, and legal questions of the period. Appendices of documents are included. ([umlaut] Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR)
