Often bound together, the two handbooks in this volume describe the practice of the mixed secular (civil and criminal) and ecclesiastical courts in the Papal States. First published in 1585, it went through six editions, the last one in 1647. Parisio's Terminorum describes the nature and jurisdictions of the different courts, including the Rota Romana. Amico's Examinandi discusses criminal procedure, with sections on evidence, trial procedure and the use of torture. It was first published in 1604 and went through four editions, the last one in 1647. All editions of both titles are very scarce, rare if you omit holdings in European libraries. Terminorum: OCLC locates 3 copies in North America, none of this edition; Examinandi: OCLC locates 2 copies in North America, 1 of this edition (at the Library of Congress). Neither title in the British Museum Catalogue.
