Covering the whole of the ius commune from Abbate to Zelo, this dictionary was compiled from Barbosa's works by Johann Otto Tabor and published in 1652. It was expanded in subsequent editions by Tobias Otto Tabor, Samuel Stryk [1640-1710] and Andreas Christoph Rosener [1657-1719]. The final edition was reissued in 1719 and 1737. The Thesaurus is an encyclopedic dictionary; most of the definitions are remarkably long and detailed with numerous citations; many are divided into complex sub-categories. Barbosa was a notable Portuguese canonist, later Bishop of Ugento, who spent his professional career in Rome and Madrid. A prolific author, his work is distinguished by a close reading of sources and a taste for controverted questions. Johann Otto Tabor was a distinguished German jurist and professor of law at the University of Giessen and the brother of Tobias Otto. All editions are scarce. OCLC locates 3 copies of the second edition in North America (at Harvard Law School, Princeton and UC-Berkeley Law School). This edition not in the British Museum Catalogue or Roberts.
