Between 1250 and 1450 the Post-Glossators, a group of legal scholars and teachers in Italy, initiated the recovery of Roman law texts from the corruptions of the medieval Glossators. Their efforts to apply Roman law to the jurisprudence of their day also prepared the way for the natural law school of the seventeenth century and helped to lay the foundations of the modern state. The greatest member of this group was Bartolus, a practicing lawyer and professor at the University of Perugia. His unrivalled reputation derives from his enormous literary output, much of it dealing with the texts later collected as the Corpus Juris Civilis. He produced commentaries on most of these texts. The most notable are the ones dealing with the Digest and Code; all of them went through numerous editions and issues. In Authenticis Commentaria discusses the Authentica, a collection of 134 constitutions of Justinian, later included in the Novels of the Corpus Juris Civilis. It was thought to be a collection intended for promulgation in Byzantine Italy, but this is doubted today. No copies of this imprint listed on OCLC.
