Antonius de Butrio (1338 – 4.10.1408) studied in Bologna, where he learned canon law above all from Petrus de Ancherano. In 1386 he embarked on his law studies. After gaining his doctorate in canon law on 12 July 1387 he was appointed associate professor in Bologna on 17 June 1391 and then full professor on 19 November 1399. In the years 1387 – 1408 he was a professor for canon law in Bologna with the following interruptions: 1390-91 in Perugia, 1393-1400 in Florence, 1402-1403 in Ferrara. Antonius de Butrio was also an outstanding teacher of law. His lectures attracted large numbers of students, some of whom in turn went on to shine as canonists: Franciscus Zabarella and Dominicus de S. Geminiano. In the 13th and 14th century, Bologna was the center par excellence for canonical jurisprudence. In teaching and learning, the university had an impact throughout Europe. Antonius de Butrio also gained fame, however, because he remained a layperson his entire life and can be regarded as one of the first great canonists not to be ordained or hold a post within the church. The first book is dedicated to the structure of the church and its offices. The second and third books contain general contractual doctrine and also interest and usury, the fourth book of decretals is dedicated to marital and family law. The final book of decretals deals primarily with criminal procedure (trial by inquisition). Inquisitorial prosecution began in the 13th century and was an effective method applied by the Catholic Church in the prosecution above all of heretics and later witches.
