Biography/Description

A Franciscan observant from Milan who spent much of his life as the vicar general of the order at the papal curia, Angelus wrote a widely circulating penitential Summa. His main sources were the works of his equally successful predecessors, Bartholomaeus de San Concordo (Summa Pisana) and Monaldus (Monaldina). Martin Luther burnt an exemplar of the Summa, which he called Diabolica, in a protest against catholic penitential discipline in 1520. A. also wrote a Consilium condemning the Monte dell doti of Florence and another supporting it.
