Maria Antonio of
Minorite, b. at Vicenza, 1 March, 1834; d. at Rovigno, 22 June, 1884.
After his ordination (1856) he devoted himself to the study of
scholastic authors, especially of St. Bonaventure whose
"Breviloquium" he published in a new edition (Venice, 1874;
Freiburg, 1881). He also edited the "Lexicon Bonaventurianum,"
(Venice, 1880), in which the terminology of the scholastics is
explained. His contributions to hagiography include nineteen studies
of the lives of the saints of the Franciscan Order.
