Bartholomew of Bologna

Bartholomew Of Bologna, an Italian ecclesiastic who lived in the beginning of the 14th century, was a Dominican missionary. Pope John XXII consecrated him at Avignon for the bishopric of Maratha, a city situated on the confines of Armenia and Persia. He made many converts among the heathen and Mussulmans, built a great many churches and monasteries, and was appointed archbishop of Naxivan, in Armenia, which became the centre of his missionary labors. He published several treatises in the Armenian language, and translated the Psalms and some parts of the works of Thomas Aquinas into Armenian.
