Engraving. Plate 185 x 133mm. 7¼ x 5¼".
Published in Isaac Bullart's 'Académie des Sciences et des Arts'. Tiberio Decianus (1509-1582) was an Italian jurist in the tradition of Renaissance humanism. Born in Udine, he studied liberal arts and then law in Padua. He practiced law in Udine and soon became a member of the city council; however in 1544 he moved his practice to Venice and three years later began to teach law at Padua. His most pioneering work was in criminal law, and his posthumous publication of 'Tractatus criminalis', was the first to discuss general principles of criminal law.
