I have a question about Latin for cataloging purposes

Is this author's name (Gregorius) in the possessive? Because if it is in the possessive, it has to come before the title (ie Stephen Speilberg's E.T.), but if it's not doesn't have to be part of the title.

The author's name is not in the possessive. Gregorius is the Latin version of Gregory and is in the nominative (subject) form. If it was possessive, it would have an "i" at the end (Gregorii).
