But his superiors refused to grant his request, and he continued during his whole life to teach in the different cities of Italy. Rho was, near the close of his life, made superior of a convent at Milan, and finally died at Rome, Nov. 9, 1662. He left several works, among them, Martyrium Trium Beatorum e Soc. Jesu, Pauli Michi, Joh. Goto, et
Jac. Ghisai. (Florence, 1628): — Interrogationes Apologeticoe (Lyons, 1641): — and orations on various ecclesiastical subjects.
