Triumphus, Augustinus an Augustinian hermit monk who was a native of Ancona, attended the University of Paris for a time, and was present at the Council of Lyons in 1274. He also sojourned at Venice while engaged in the publication of several small books in honor of the Virgin, and at Naples, where he became the favorite of kings Charles and Robert, and where he died in 1328, at the age of eighty-five years. A number of published and unpublished works from his pen are yet extant. We note one On the Ecclesiastical Power, addressed to pope John XXII (Augsburg, 1473): — A Commentary on the
Lord's Prayer: — Comments on the Ave Maria and the Magnificat (Rome, 1590, 1592, 1603): — a Milleloquium from the works of Augustine, unfinished by Triumphus, but completed by the Augustinian Bartholomew of Urbino (Lyons, 1555).
