/glosa/ A gloss, explanation, or interpretation. The glossal of the Roman law are brief illustrative comments or annotations on the text of Justinian's collections, made by the professors who taught or lectured on them about the twelfth century (especially at the law school of Bologna), and were hence called "glossators." These glosses were at first inserted in the text with the words to which they referred, and were called "glossoe interlineares; " but afterwards they were placed in the margin, partly at the side, and partly under the text, and called "glossoe marginales." A selection of them was made by Accursius, between A.D. 1220 and 1260, under the title of "glossa Ordinaria," which is of the greatest authority
