Query: Who is V. Rigaltius?


A few days ago I posted an inquiry about emancibado or casado de media carta.  Since then, I have come across another reference in Pufendorf's de Jure Naturae where he mentions the term with regard to concubinage and quotes V. Rigaltius History status present imper. Turcico.

Can anyone help me identify this source? I haven't had any luck. There is a Nicolas Rigault but I can't identify a book with this title.

Feel free to email me at bbasaran@smcm.edu

Thank you!
