FRANCISCUS.  Latin name meaning "free man," from Teutonic Frang ("free lord"). (History of Christian Names, Yonge, 1884)

    Graziano, Gratian (Franciscus Gratianus), founder of the science of canon law; born in Italy, c. 1090.  In early life he appears to have become a Benedictine monk, and to have entered the Camaldulian monastery of Classe near Ravenna, whence he afterwards removed to that of San Felice at Bologna.  Here he spent many years in the preparation of his great work, the celebrated Concordia discordantium Canonum, better known as the Decretum Gratiani, which was published between 1140 and 1150.  In this work, which forms the first part of the Corpus Juris Canonici, and which he compiled from the Holy Scriptures, the Canons of the Apostles and of the Councils, the Decretals of the Popes, and the writings of the Fathers, Gratian brought into agreement the laws of the ecclesiastical and secular courts. (Concise Dictionary of Proper Names and Notable Matters in the Works of Dante, Toynbee, 1914)
