Noceti, Carlo an Italian litterateur, was born about 1695 in Pontremoli. Admitted among the Jesuits, he taught theology in the Roman College, and in 1756 became coadjutor of P. Turano in the functions of penitentiary of St. Peter and examiner of bishops. He cultivated with success Latin poetry, and held relations with several savans and litterateurs of his time. He died in Rome in 1759. We have of his works, Eclogae, printed with those of Rapin (Rome, 1741, 8vo): — De Iride et Aurora boreali carmina (ibid. 1747, 4to); this edition, given by Boscovich, has been reproduced without the notes in the Poemata didascalica of P. Oudin; Roucher, In his Mois, has imitated the second of these poems; — Veritas vindicata (ibid. and Lucca, 1753, 2 vols.), this is a criticism upon the Theologia Christiana of P. Coucina, a Dominican monk, who had declared war against the probabilism and renissness of the doctrines of the Jesuits some Latin and Italian Poesies in a collection of the Academy of the Arcades.
