Fano, Fidelis A

Fano, Fidelis a an Italian writer, was born December 24, 1838, at Fano, Italy. In 1855 he entered the order of the Franciscans, and was ordained priest in 1862. Having been called to Rome in 1870, he published there Bonaventurae Doctrina de Pontificis Primatu et Infallibilitate: Ratio Novae Collectionis Operum S. Bonaventurae (1874). After having ransacked almost all the European libraries with a view to editing a new and critical edition of Bonaventura's works, for which he seemed to have been specially adapted, he died August 12, 1881, at the College of St. Bonaventmura in Quaracchi, near Florence. His notes, comprising several folio volumes, are in the hands of P. Ignatius, one of the first assistants of Fidelis, who will probably bring about the publication of the works of the doctor Seraphicus. (B.P.)
