Accursius (in Italian Accursio, Accorso or also Accorso di Bagnolo; c. 1182 – 1263) was a Roman jurist. He is notable for his organization of the glosses, the medieval comments on Justinian's codification of Roman law, the Corpus Juris Civilis. He was not proficient in the classics, but he was called "the Idol of the Jurisconsults". Apart from his work as a glossator, Accursius was also engaged very profitably as a legal consultant. Three of his four sons were also jurists: Cervottus, Guilelmus and the noted Franciscus. He died in Bologna.

  • Accursius (in Italian Accursio, Accorso or also Accorso di Bagnolo; c. 1182 – 1263) was a Roman jurist. He is notable for his organization of the glosses, the medieval comments on Justinian's codification of Roman law, the Corpus Juris Civilis. He was not proficient in the classics, but he was called "the Idol of the Jurisconsults". Accursius was born at Impruneta, near Florence. A pupil of Azo, he first practised law in his native city, and was afterwards appointed professor at Bologna, where he had great success as a teacher. He undertook to arrange into one body the tens of thousands of comments and remarks upon the Code, the Institutes and Digests. Accursius assembled from the various earlier glosses for each of these texts a coherent and consistent body of glosses. This compilation, soon given the title Glossa ordinaria or magistralis, and usually known as the Great Gloss, was essentially complete at about 1230. While Accursius was employed in this work, legend has it that, hearing of a similar one proposed and begun by Odofred, another lawyer of Bologna, he feigned indisposition, interrupted his public lectures, and shut himself up, till with the utmost expedition he had accomplished his design. After the middle of the 13th century, the Gloss had grown to be the starting point for every exegesis of the Corpus Iuris, and was even given force of law in some jurisdictions. The authority of the Gloss is probably due to Accursius' very exhaustive coverage of the civil law, in the course of which he not only pointed out its problems but unlike his predecessors also offered solutions for them. Indeed, modern research has shown that Accursius' work contains nearly 100,000 glosses. The best edition is that of Denis Godefroi, published at Lyon in 1589, in six folio volumes. For his magnum opus, Accursius was extolled by the lawyers of his own and the immediately succeeding age as the greatest glossator, and he was even called the idol of jurisconsults, but those of later times formed a lower estimate of his merits. Eventually, 16th century humanists, including Rabelais in his Gargantua and Pantagruel, polemically criticised Accursius' Gloss. Apart from his work as a glossator, Accursius was also engaged very profitably as a legal consultant. Three of his four sons were also jurists: Cervottus, Guilelmus and the noted Franciscus. He died in Bologna. (en)
  • Accursius (en italiano Accorso o también Accorso di Bagnolo; c. 1182-1263) fue un jurista italiano. Es notable por la organización que hizo de las glosas, los comentarios de la Edad Media sobre la codificación que hizo Justiniano I sobre derecho romano, el Corpus Iuris Civilis. Fue poco diestro en los clásicos, pero fue llamado el "Ídolo de los juristas consultantes". Accursius nació en Impruneta, cerca de Florencia. Fue pupilo de Acio de Bolonia, practicó desde un inicio el derecho en su ciudad natal, y fue contratado posteriormente como profesor en Bolonia, donde tuvo gran éxito como maestro. Emprendió la labor de arreglar en un solo cuerpo textual las decenas de miles de glosas y observaciones sobre el Código, los Institutos y los Digestos. Acurrsius ensambló de las varias glosas tempranas para cada uno de estos textos un coherente y consistente cuerpo de glosas. (es)
