Bernardi, Giovanni a Benedictine monk of St. Clement of Pescara, lived in the latter half of the 12th century. He was educated in the Abbey of St. Clement of Casario, or of Pescara, the history of which he gave under the title, Chronicon S. Clementis Casanriensis, sive Piscariensis Abbatice, divided into three parts, commencing with the emperor Louis II, founder of the monastery of Pescara, in 854, and concluding in 1182. D'Achery published this history in vol. v. of his Spicilegium (Paris, 1661). Duchesne and Ughelli also published it, but anonymously. See Hoefer, Nouv. Biog. Generale. s.v.
