Capranica, Domenico

Capranica, Domenico, an Italian ecclesiastic, was born at Capranica, near Palestrina, May 31,1400. He completed his studies at Padua and Bologna, and became one of the most learned men of his time. Pope Martin V employed him: in many important matters, gave him the government of Imola, and made him cardinal in 1426, but died without sending to Capranica the cap and ring, emblems of the office; therefore the other cardinals refused to admit him to the conclave.
