Pacificus a noted Itaian mediaeval ecclesiastic, was born at Verona in 776, and after having entered the service of the Church, was made archdeacon of the cathedral in his native town. He had great mechanical skill, and considerably promoted all inventive labors. He died in 844. He left glosses on several books of the Old and New Testament Scriptures, but they have never been collected for publication. His learning and piety in those early mediaeval days were the subject of common remark, and his name deserves to be honorably mentioned in all Christian literary undertakings. See Muratori, Antiquitates Itrali medii oevi, 3, 837; Maffei, Verona Illustrata, s.v.
