Bonaventure of Padua

Bonaventure Of Padua, of the order of hermits of St. Augustine, and doctor of Paris, was made general of his order in 1377. In the following year he was created cardinal- priest of Santa Cecilia. He was assassinated at Rome by Francesco Carrara, the lord of Padua; the year of his death is, however, variously stated as 1385, 1388, 1389, 1396, and 1398. The Speculum B. Virginis Marice (Augsburg, 1476) is attributed to him, as are a Commentary on the Sentences, some Meditations on the Life of Christ, etc. See Dupil, 2, 533.
