[Blessed Anthony Baldinucci]
Article

Born on 19 June 1665 in Florence, Italy; died on 6 November 1717. Italian Jesuit missionary. He labored in the neighborhood of Frascati and Viterbo, Italy, his work being characterized by processions, during which Anthony and many of his flock scourged themselves with disciplines; his success was largely due to his propagation of devotion to the Blessed Virgin, whose image was always carried before him on his missions.
