From script to the printed book in the Middle Ages: Baldus de Ubaldis’ (1327–1400) repertory of works
Research report (imported) 2013 - Max Planck Institute for Legal History and Legal Theory
Within the framework of legal literature and book production in the Middle Ages, the works of Baldus de Ubaldis (1327–1400), the most famous jurist of his time, constitute a major theme in the research of the Max Planck Institute for European Legal History. His commentaria and consilia spread all over Europe in a very large number of manuscripts and early printed books, so that Baldus’ works became an important normative source of the ius commune. A researcher investigates the author’s surviving manuscripts and compiles an intellectual biography.
