What do references like “Docc Rom.” and similar mean?

In the book Giordano Bruno: His Life and Thought, by Dorothea Waley Singer, references often have a form of

18 Doc. Ven. XV.


49 Docc. Rom. XX, XXI.

How to decipher them?


In 1933, Vicenzo Spampanato published many documents on the life of Bruno under the title Documenti della vita di Giordano Bruno.

He divided these documents into the Documenti Veneti and the Documenti Romani, and numbered each document with a Roman numeral. Docc stands for the plural Documenti.

So Docc. Rom. XX, XXI. means documents XX and XXI from the Documenti Romani.
