Corsini, Andrea

Corsini, Andrea an Italian ecclesiastic, was born at Florence, November 30, 1302. He entered the order of Carmelites in 1319, was ordained priest in 1328, and became distinguished by his sermons, and still more by the sanctity of his life. According to the Bibliotheque Sacree, he was made bishop of Fiesole in 1359 or 1360, in spite of his efforts to avoid it, and his fife was one of deep humility. He was sent as legate to Bologna by pope Urban V, and appeased the seditions which disturbed that city. He died January 6, 1373, and is commemorated on February 4. Urban VIII canonized him.
