Giovanni Antonio Sangiorgio[1] (died 14 March 1509) was an Italian canon lawyer and Cardinal.[2] He has been called one of the ‘last two great commentators on feudal law’.[3]

Sangiorgio was born in Milan. He was bishop of Alessandria from 1478; he was referred to as the Cardinal of Alessandria.[4] He was bishop of Parma in 1500.[5] He died in Rome.

His De appellationibus was an early printed book (1474,[6] Como, Ambrogio d'Orco and Dionigi Paravicino).
