Dante Alighieri, 1265-1321,
Cino, da Pistoia, 1270?-1336 or 7
DescriptionThis dissertation examines the doctrinal relationship between Dante and contemporary legal scholars, particularly Cino da Pistoia. The study positions Dante's work within ongoing debates between French (Orleanese) and Italian (Bolognese) jurists at the turn of the fourteenth century, arguing that Dante's representations of positive law and its practitioners arise out of his longstanding engagement with the Justinian Corpus.
