Often quoted under the name of Felinus, Italian canonist of the fifteenth century, b. at Felina, Diocese of Reggio, in 1444; d. at Lucca, October, 1503, according to most writers, according to others at Rome, 6 Sept. of the same year. He taught canon law from 1466 to 1474 at Ferrara, which was his family's native place, and at Pisa until 1484, when he became auditor of the Sacred Palace and lived at Rome. On 4 May, 1495, he became Bishop of Penna and Atri and on 25 Sept. of the same year Coadjutor Bishop of Lucca with right of succession. He became Bishop of Lucca in 1499. Felino was a good compiler but lacked originality. His chief work is "Lectura", or "Commentaria in varios titulos libri I, II, IV, et V Decretalium" (see Hain, "Repert. bibliogr.", II, n, 269-78, N. 14280-14325, published rather often, notably at Milan, 1504; Basle, 1567; Lyons, 1587). He also published a "Sermo de indulgentia", "Repetitiones" "Consilia", and "Epitome de regno Siciliae" (s. 1., 1495). Some unedited works are mentioned in Fabricius, "Bib. latina mediae et infimae aetatis" with additions by Mansi, II (Florence, 1858), 558.
