Hartmann Schedel's Weltchronik (1493), also known as 'The Nuremberg Chronicle', contains 31 items on medieval jurists. These items are interesting because, through an intermediate source, they go for the larger part back to Caccialupi, the first serious historiographer of medieval jurisprudence (first edition 1472). This intermediate source, Jacobus Philippus Foresti of Bergamo (1434–1520), did more than passing on Caccialupi's knowledge, which was based essentially on manuscripts. Foresti, not formally trained in law, in particular used information about recently printed editions to update his own chronicle (first edition 1483). His role in legal historiography is more important than has been acknowledged so far.
