Ballarini, Ippolito, an Italian theologian, was a native of Novara. He first entered the Benedictine Order, then that of the Camaldules. In 1545 he became abbot of St. Michael of Murano at Venice, and general of his order in 1556. He died in 1558. He wrote, Tractatus de Diligendis Ininnicis, with no indication of place or date; an Italian translation of this by Morosini is found (Venice, 1555): — Tractatus super Orationem Dominicam.
