Carbo Sebastiano Berardi

Carbo Sebastiano Berardi

Carbo Sebastiano Berardi (b. at Oneglia, Italy, 26 August1719; d. 1768) was an Italian Roman Catholic priest and canon lawyer.

Life

Having studied theology at Savona under the Piarists, he was promoted to the priesthood and then began the study of law at Turin, paying particular attention to canonical jurisprudence. In 1749 he was appointed prefect of the law-faculty of the University of Turin, while from 1754 till his death he was professor of canon law in the same institution.

Works

Berardi's works are:
*(1) "Gratiani canones genuini ab apocryphis discreti, corrupti ad emendatiorum codicum fidem exacti, difficiliores commodâ interpretatione illustrati" (4 vols. quarto, Turin, 1752-57; Venice, 1777, 1783).

This is an esteemed critical exposition of Gratian's "Decretum", sometimes ranked second only to Antonio Agostino's work. It sets forth the original authorities of the "Decretum", though clumsy at distinguishing genuine sources from those that are spurious. A compendium of this work by an unknown writer, published at Venice, 1778, is entitled, "Compendium Commentariorum Caroli Sebastiani Berardi in Canones Gratiani."

*(2) "De Variis Sacrorum Canonum Collectionibus ante Gratianum", published together with his first work.
*(3) "Commentaria in Jus Ecclesiasticum Universum", four vols. quarto, Turin, 1766; two vols. octavo, Venice, 1778, 1789; 1847).
*(4) "Institutiones Juris Ecclesiastici" (2 vols. Turin, 1769).
