Formal document recording the admission of Geronimo Burgio as doctor of law, specializing in civil and canon law, granted by the Collegium Illustrissimorum et Reverendorum Prothonotariorum of Rome (faculty of law affiliated with the Curia Romana) in 1661. According to the document, written in the first person by Ludovicus Antonius Manfronius, dean of the Collegium, Burgio received his doctorate after completing extensive training and passing a rigorous examination before a committee of five scholars (Camillo Ghino, Aloysio de' Aquino, Galeatio Marescotto, Octavio de Mari, and Marcello Duratio). As a doctor of law, Geronimo Burgio also had the prerogative to teach both civil and canon law, and the authority to practice law in the whole city of Rome. The document bears the signature of the dean, as well as that of another member of the Collegium (f.4r).
