Alternative Names

Francesco degli Atti



Born in Todi Franciscus studied and received a doctorate in canon law. He was elected bishop of Corfu in 1348, but translated to Chiusi the same year. There he composed his only known canonical treatise, dealing with the episcopal share of the tithes. He later transferred to Cassino (1353) and Florence (1355). In 1357, he finally moved to the papal court at Avignon after Pope Innocent VI had made him cardinal. He died in 1361.
