Alteserra, Antoine Dadin

Alteserra, Antoine Dadin a famous French historian and canonist, was born at Guyenne in 1602. In 1644 he was appointed professor of jurisprudence at the University of Toulouse, and died in 1682 as dean of his faculty. His extensive knowledge of the Greek and Latin Church fathers as well as of the history of the councils made him an authority in that department and acquired for him the high esteem in which he was held by the French clergy. Of his many works we mention, De Origine et Statu Feudorum pro Moribus Gallica (Paris, 1619): — Innocentius III P. M., seu Commentarius Perpetuus in Singulas Decretales hujusce Pontificis, que per Libros V Decretaliumn sparsce sunt (ibid. 1666): — Note in Epistolas Gregorii Magni (Tolos. 1669): Asceticon, sive Originum Rei ilonastic Libri X (Paris, 1674; Halle, 1782): — Notae et Observationes in X Libros Historie Francorum Gregorii, Turonensis Episcopi, et Supplenentunm Fredegarii (Tolos. 1679): — Notce et Observationes in Anastasium de Vitis Romanorum Pontificum (Paris, 1680): — In Libros Clementinorum Commentarii (ibid. eod.; Halle, 1782): — Ecclesiasticm Jurisdictionis Vindicia adversus Caroli Feoreti et aliorum Tractatus de Abusu (Paris, 1703, and often).
