Friar Minor Capuchin and historical writer, d. in 1774. He belonged to the Province of Piedmont in Italy, and left two valuable historical treatises. The first, entitled "Chronica et critics historiæ sacræ et profanæ" (Rome, 1766), deals with various astronomical questions and the religious rites and ceremonies of ancient peoples, and was written with a view to facilitate the study of Sacred Scripture. In the second work, entitled 'LPrivilegiorum S. Petri vindicia" (Rome, 1756-66), he gives a history of the primacy of the Roman Pontiff.
