Brunforte, Ugolino

Ugolino of Monte Giorgio (c.1262-c.1348) Italian Friar Minor and chronicler. He spent most of his life at the convent of Santa Maria in Monte Giorgio. In 1225 he was chosen Bishop of Abruzzi under Celestine V, but Boniface VIII, who succeeded before his consecration, annulled the appointment. Recent research has led most scholars to agree in regarding Ugolino as the author of the "Fioretti" or "Little Flowers of Saint Francis."
