Camillo Almici



A priest of the Congregation of the Oratory, born 2 November, 1714; died 30 December, 1779. He became a member of the Congregation of the Oratory at a very early age and devoted himself to the study of theology, Greek, and Hebrew, the Holy Scriptures, chronology, sacred and profane history, antiquities, criticism, diplomacy, and liturgy,and was held in much esteem for his great and wide learning. Amongst his contemporaries he was regarded as an oracle upon many subjects, and is looked upon as one of the most celebrated theologians of his order. Of the many works he wrote, the principal are:

  • Riflessioni sù di un libro di G. Febronio (Lucca, 1766);

  • Critica contro le opere del pericoloso Voltaire (Brescia, 1770);

  • Dissertazione spora i Martiri della Chiesa cattolica (Brescia, 1765) 2 vols.;

  • Méditations sur la vie et les écrits du P. Sarpi (1765).

The last named is a critical examination of Sarpi's unreliable history of the Council of Trent.
