Biography/Description

A Florentine Dominican from the Forciglione family, Antonius became archbishop of Florence in 1446. He was the author of many, mostly theological, works of tremendous influence, which were soon to be translated into Italian and also circulated in various adaptations. Among these writings, a manual on confession became the most popular. Antoninus was canonized in 1523.
