Armellini, Geronimo (called also Armenini and Jerome of Faenza), a native of Faenza, was general inquisitor of the Catholic faith at Mantua about 1516. He is supposed to have filled the same position in several other cities of Lombardy. He was a strong adversary of heretics. According to Sextius Senensis, he wrote against a Calabrian astrologer named Tiberio Rossiliano, who believed that one could easily foretell the deluge by the aid of astronomical calculations, based upon the conjunction of the planets. Echard affirms that the MS. of this work is preserved in the Library of the Vatican; but Mazzuchelli states that he was unable to find it either printed or in, MS. See Hoefer, Nouv. Biog.
