Coscia, Lelipo

Coscia, Lelipo a Neapolitan prelate, brother of Niccolo, was born at Benevento, and lived at Rome in 1731. He was, like his brother, an attendant of Benedict XIII, and became private chamberlain and vicargeneral. April 8, 1725, he was consecrated bishop of Targo by the pope, who, in April, 1729, appointed him his auditor. After the death of Benedict XIII, Coscia was included in the disgrace of his brother, and shared a similar fate, being deprived of his honors and condemned to suffer imprisonment. Nothing is known of the closing years of his life. See Hoefer, NVouv. Biog. Generale, s.v.
