Attacanti (or Atavanti) Giacomo

Attacanti (or Atavanti) Giacomo, an Italian ecclesiastic, was a Servite and of a noble family in Florence, and distinguished for his genius and acquirements. Costo de' Medici made him professor of theology at Pisa, and the pope appointed him general of his order. He collected a library of more than three thousand volumes in his convent at Pisa, and died at the age of eighty-one (in 1607), leaving many works still ill MS., both in Italian and Latin; among them an immense work in twenty-five volumes, called Ager Domini, containing the treasures of wisdom and divine knowledge.
