Erfurter Juristen Im Spätmittelalter: Die Karrieremuster Und Tätigkeitsfelder Einer Gelehrten Elite Des 14. Und 15. Jahrhunderts

Erfurter Juristen im Spätmittelalter: Die Karrieremuster und Tätigkeitsfelder einer gelehrten Elite des 14. und 15. Jahrhunderts. By Robert Gramsch. [Education and Society in the Middle Ages and Renaissance, Vol. 17.] (Leiden: E. J. Brill. 2003. Pp. xvi, 717. CD-ROM enclosed. euro149; $183.00.)

(The reviewer easily traced two manuscripts owned by Lambert Voss von Soest, one of the some 700 jurists mentioned in the book and profiled in the enclosed CDROM.) Each jurist is included in detailed statistical reports on place of origin, degrees achieved, and later careers.

Among these are Johannes Tolner, a friend of Aeneas Sylvius Piccolomini (Pius II), and Johannes Lysura, a prominent adviser to the German princes in that crisis.

The book begins with an overview that includes detailed discussions of the available sources. The university itself is treated next. This includes a detailed listing of all known teachers of law in the period examined. …
