Salviati, Antonio Maria

Salviati, Antonio Maria, an Italian cardinal, nephew of Bernardo and Giovanni, was born in 1507. In 1561 he became bishop of Saint-Papoul, a diocese which had been held by his two uncles; but he relinquished it in 1563, and was sent by Pius IV as ambassador to the court of France. Gregory XIII also employed him in various capacities, and in 1583 invested him with the purple. Salviati was afterwards legate at Bologna, and, on account of his virtues, was called the "great cardinal Salviati." He died at Rome, April 28, 1602.
