Maletis, Albericus de

De testibus.


Analysis of Content

A1r [Title-page.]

A2r Rosate, Albericus de [pseudo-; Maletis, Albericus de]: De testibus. Incipit: ‘Conspiciens testium materiam frequentem et necessariam vt inquit Arch[ad]ius iurisco[nsultus] eamque confuse satis atque diffuse a maioribus nostris traditam esse . . .’ Ascribed in this edition to Albericus de Rosate, but ascribed to Albericus de Maletis by Savigny VI note 115, which erroneously suggests that the author is to be identified with ‘Christophorus Albericius Papiensis'. Correctly identified in Memorie e documenti per la storia dell'Università di Pavia e degli uomini più illustri che v'insegnarono, 3 parts (Pavia, 1877-8), I 44; BMC VII 1012 ascribes the work to Albricus de Militio, stating ‘the surname “de Rosate” . . . being an erroneous amplification'. GW gives ‘de Militio' as a variant form of de Maletis; also ‘de Manectis'.
