Bartolocci (di Celleno), GIULIO, a learned Italian Bernardine, was born at Celleno in 1613. He was a pupil of the Jewish convert Giovanni Battista (q.v.), who instructed him in Hebrew. In 1651 he was appointed professor of the Hebrew and Rabbinic languages at the Collegium Neophytorum et Transmarinorum in Rome, and Scriptor Hebraicus of the Vatican Library. He died Nov. 1, 1687. He is the author of Bibliotheca Magna Rabbinica le Scriptoribus lebrceorum Ord. Alphab. Hebr. et Lat. Digest. (Rome, 1675, 1693, 4 vols.). The idea and plan, and in part, the material, of the work he received from his teacher, who commenced it in a chronological order, which was abandoned by Bartolocci. A continuation of the work was made by Imbonato under the title Bibliotheca Lat. Hebr. Auct… cum Indicibus (ibid. 1694). In the latter work we have also a list, De Scriptoribus Latinis qui contr a Judaos vel de Re Hebs. Scripsere, cuit Annotatt. Crit. et Histor. Of the complete Bibliotheca, including the continuation by Imbonato, Brunet says, "Ces deux ouvrages se trouvent difficilement." See Furst,: Bibl. Jud. i, 89; Wolf, Bibliotheca Hebraica; Jocher, Allgemeines Gelehrten - Lexikon, s.v.; Hoefer, Nouv. Biog. Generale, s.v. (B. P.)
