Angelieri, Bonaventura, an Italian monk of the Order of the Minorites of St. Francis, was born at Marsala, in Sicily, near the middle of the 17th century. He is known by the singularity of the titles of two books which he published, followed by twenty-four others on the same subjects. The first is entitled Lux Magica, etc., Celestium, Terrestrium, et Inferorum Origo, Ordo, et Subordinatio Cunctorum, quoad Esse, Fieri, et Operari, Viginti Quatuor Voluminibus Divisa; Pars Prima, etc. (Venice, 1686). This was published under the pseudonym Livio Betani. The second volume was entitled Lux Magica A cademica; Pars Secunda, Primordia Rerum Naturalium, Sanabilium, Infirmarum, et Incurabilium Continens, etc. (ibid. 1687). See Hoefer, Nouv. Biog.
