He taught at the Universities of Bologna, Perugia, Pisa, Florence, Padua, Pavia and Piacenza. He also served occasionally as a judge and diplomat. His fame rests on his commentaries on Roman and canon law, which were standard texts into the seventeenth century. Originally published in the fifteenth century, the Lectura is a commentary on the Books 1-24, Title 2 of the Digest, a critical edition of writings by Gaius, Ulpian, Papinian and 36 other eminent jurisconsults organized by topic. Along with the Institutes, Code and Novels, the Digest is one of the writings known collectively as the Corpus Juris Civilis.
