Angriani (Aygriani, or Aygnani), Michael
Angriani (Aygriani, Or Aygnani), Michael (more commonly known as Michael of Bologna, where he was born about the middle of the 14th century and entered the order of Carmelites), studied at Paris, and in 1354 was named regent of the Carmelite convent in that city; subsequently, about 1372, he was appointed definitor of the province of Bologna. The great schism which divided the Roman Church after the death of Gregory XI caused vast division also among the religious orders, and especially among the Carmelites. The convents of France, Spain, Scotland, and Naples attached themselves to the party of Clement VII, as did also Bernard, the seventeenth general of the order, who for that reason was deposed by pope Urban; and in a general chapter held at Bruges in 1379, and in another at Milan in 1381, Michael Angriani was elected in his place. However, in 1386, he was deposed by Urban himself without any cause being assigned, upon which he retired into the convent at Bologna, where he died, Nov. 16, 1400 (according to the most probable opinion; Trithemius says in 1416). His works are, Questiones Disputatce in Libros IV Sentent. (Milan, 1510): — Commentaria in Psalmos, commonly called opus auctoris incogniti (Alcala, 1524): — a work on the Conception of the Blessed Virgin: — a book on St. Matthew's Gospel: a book on St. Luke: — Postils on St. John: — Postils on the Apocalypse: — Sermons: — Dictionarium Divinum (unfinished): — and many others.
