After a frivolous youth, this wealthy Florentine lord joined the Carmelites at the age of 16. Ordained priest, then bishop of Fiesole, in Tuscany, he defines himself as “the father and administrator of the poor”. Many miraculous healings are attributed to him. Recognized for his talents as a conciliator, he was commissioned by Pope Urban V in Bologna to restore civil peace.
