His many works, all commentaries on aspects of Roman and canon law, went through several editions and were often excerpted and anthologized. The two titles in this volume are from a deluxe series published by Giunta in 1575-1576. (All but the Repertorium are bibliographically distinct.) The Repertorium is an index to this set. In Primam, & Secundam Infortiati is a commentary on the books from the Digest of the Corpus Jur.
