Rossignoli, Bernardino, an Italian theologian, was born at Ormea in 1563.. At the age of sixteen he joined the Society of Jesus, subsequently taught theology at Milan, was rector of several colleges, and was provincial at Rome. At the time of his death, June 5, 1613. he was rector of a college at Turin. Rossignoli's writings are, De Disciplina Christianca Perfectionis Lib. V (Ingolstadt, 1600 ): — De Actionibus Virtutis Lib. II (Venice, 1603). These two works passed through many editions, and the first was translated into French (Paris, 1606). Several other works have been attributed to Rossignoli, but it is probable that he was merely the translator. At the time of the interest excited in the De Imitatione Christi, Rossignoli was the first to attract attention to the MS. of this work, bearing the name of abbe Jean Gerson.
