Arcimboldi, Giovanni Angelo
Arcimboldi, Giovanni Angelo an Italian ecclesiastic at Milan in 1485, was sent by Leo X as papal nuncio to Scandinavia in order to sell papal indulgences. The permission to do so he bought at a high price of King Christian II of Denmark. In the controversies springing up between the Danes and the Swedes, he was first bribed by the Danes and later by the Swedes. On his return to Italy, Leo X ordered a suit to be instituted against him, but in 1525 he was made bishop of Novara, and in 1550 archbishop of Milan. He died in 1555.
