320 Henricus de Fratta, bishop of Bologna (1213-1240), on which see LORENZO PAOLINI art. "Della Fratta, Enrico" in DBI 37 (1989) 1-5. Although Gerardus Ariosti was the newly elected bishop of Bologna when the Oliva was written--close to the end of the twelfth century---this initial was updated in all manuscripts from 'G.' to 'H.' fifteen years later, because Gerard had finally been forced to resign in disgrace. For the deposition of Gerardus Ariosti (bishop of Bologna 1198-1213), see LORENZO PAOLINI "L'evoluzione di una funzione ecclesiastica: l'arcidiacono e lo Studio a Bologna nel XIII secolo" Studi medievali n.s. 29 (1988) 129-172 at 139. PAOLINI's discussion of the charges made against Gerard does not include the supporting evidence of Boncompagnus 3.5.1, which details how Gerard 'stole' his episcopal election in 1198, with the help of the canon Bonaguisa. However, that election account may well be entirely fictive, recast in the light of Gerard's 1213 deposition. Henricus de Fratta must have been present at the public readings of the Boncompagnus in 1215 and 1226.
